Thank you Chris. I appreciate the quick response. First of all, we love gravity forms and have been using it for almost a decade under the elite/developer subscription. Secondly, I could make a list of why Gravity forms is better than both typeform and wpforms (integrations, add-ons, community, and pricing to name a few). Love the fact that we don’t have to use Zapier with slack (and others) and that you support webhooks for direct integrations. So much flexibility and power!
*** Not that far away ***
However, lacking typeform/conversational forms is crucial to keeping gravity forms modern. “Auto-next“ and “form focus” are critical to completion rates which is why these form styles are so popular.
A typeform similar flow is not far away. I can see 1 built in function (multi page with Ajax) and 1 extension (multi-page auto advance) that will complete 2 of the 3 requirements. The final requirement of “beauty and focus” is still open (custom css?).
Typeform and WpForm do an excellent job making any form beautiful, clean, and focused. Somehow wpforms is able to convert all of their forms to a “conversational form/typeform style”. Imagine the power this would bring to gravity forms!
*** Current solutions/Work arounds ***
The major downside with multi-page with Ajax loading is that we are not using the system as designed form creation is more complicated than it should be.
Auto advancing should be built in and should not require a 3rd party plugin.
Beauty - Maybe model after lastform? I’m happy to buy lastform and give to your team. The plugin has everything desired to make gravityforms beautiful out of the box for conversational forms/typeform styling. The only reason why lastform can’t be used is because the author is MIA and the plugin has issues (due to lack of updates). This author has 1500 sales to date! That’s $100,000 in sales! Wow!
*** Next Steps ***
Is there a way we can “vote” this feature request up? Considering the immense popularity of typeforms, I can’t imagine that lacking this feature is not causing lost sales and turnover of existing clients for GravityForms as a company.
I’d love to be a part of this process. As mentioned… so many reasons to stay with GravityForms so let’s finish this major difference and beat WPforms and Typeform.
