I’m trying to export form entries and download the images associated with those entries. Currently it just lists the URL column with a link to the image which doesn’t help. Does anyone know of a add on or work around for this?
The export feature takes the values saved into fields from entry, for the upload field the value saved is the URL, so having the URL in the CSV file created is the expected.
To export the actual file instead, something would need to grab the URL for the field for each entry, download the file, and send it to you somehow.
I’m not aware of any ready to use solution to do that, but Gravity Forms are official partners with Codeable, who are the #1 WordPress outsourcing service. They can provide quality development from hand-picked Gravity Forms specialists for any project size and budget. Additionally, they can also provide you with a no obligation estimate of what the project may cost up front. You can reach them via this link.
You can also post to our Community Forum Job Board, We do not vet any of the individual developers there, it is an open forum for all, but our community is certainly full of talented folks!
When the option to include files in the export is enabled on the task, the task will generate a zip file containing both the file containing the actual exported entry data and then individual directories for each processed entries files.
