Scheduled Export / Email of CSV form data

  1. Hello,

    Is there a relatively easy way (minimal coding) to automatically schedule exporting of form data to an email address on a weekly basis so my users don't have to login to WP backend to figure it out on their own and risk destroying the forms/data?

    Thanks,
    Dimitry

  2. Currently there is no scheduled export capabilities. The export only happens when you use the Export Entries tool. It would be possible to do this as a customization, but you would basically have to write your own plugin to do this... you could duplicate the code from the export functionality and then wrap code around it to create a cron job, etc.

    If you want to give users the ability to export entries you could use the Members plugin to implement role management and then give their user accounts just the ability to view and export entries.

    The Members plugin is here:

    Please note if you activate the Members plugin the Gravity Forms menu item may disappear until you edit the Admin role and make sure all the Gravity Forms related capabilities are checked and active for the admin role.

  3. Is there a way to notify users that a submission has been received? I am building this for a client and need to make sure they get timely updates of new submissions so they get back in touch with clients asap.

  5. Glad you found it! I'd like to ask any php programmers out there that might like to tackle this cron job possibility to please contact me.

    Best,

    Has there been anyone that has successfully got a scheduled export functionality with GF?

    We want each user to be able to only export their entries not be able to select from the entire list.

    This is not possible with Members or Role Scoper plugins.

  10. @WebMechanix - You should absolutely write a blog post about it! There are quite a few people around these forums (like myself) that would be interested in this.. would probably bring a nice little spike in traffic for you! Plus, I'm trying to set it up myself.. I've got a little PHP knowledge but if I had a guide then I could do it right the first time.. would definitely be useful knowledge!
