Modifying the "Pending Activations" table

Hi everyone, I am using the user activation plugin and am wondering if it is possible to modify the “Pending Activations” table to add some columns that show data from the registration form.


Hi @dshanky - what are you actually trying to accomplish? Maybe there’s another way, rather than modifying a core table.

I have a team of folks who manage the pending activations, and each team member will manage only certain ones, depending on responses in the reg. form. So I want to modify the table to add a few new columns of data taken from the applicant’s responses on the reg form. Then my team can quickly glance at the pending activations table and know which activations they should action.

TL;DR: I want to add a few columns to the table and those columns would be specific fields from the reg. form.

@dshanky I’d suggest a one-to-many relationship, and create a new table to hold this metadata. Connect the two tables by storing the primary key from the pending activations table row in each record you insert in the new metatable.

Once the data layer is done, pull all the info out and display it on an admin page that your team members can access and manage.

Doing it this way would mean there’s less chance a Gravity Forms update will cause issues with your custom code, and you can add and display an unlimited amount of metadata.

@dshanky- did you find a solution to this? I am trying to accomplish the same thing.

Sort of - the developer I work with can manage it with some code mods, but my client decided to hold off on this till next year. Let me know if you want more info.
