Wtie value to field Meta Data

Hi Guys, I am new Gravity form, but so far Love it. I am looking for some guidance on how to achieve the following with Gravity form and meta tags

I Have 3 forms-
One for registration with extra fields: Status (default value:“applied”)
second form to allow update to status value
Third form displays certain input based on status…of the loged in user.

So far I have added user registration and within that I have added User meta with custom meta. Now I am kinda at lost on how to use that user meta to load specific parts of the form.

Any help would be appreciated

  • On a side note i tried using user meta to add it the user , but i am unable to see the meta value added to the user.

I use user meta a lot. I’ll populate hidden fields with the user meta:

add_filter('gform_field_value_user_role', 'gform_populate_user_role');
function gform_populate_user_role($value){
 $user = wp_get_current_user();
 $role = $user->roles;
 return reset($role);

I also get data for use in Pre Render and After Submission:

  	$v_phone = rgar( $entry, '7' );
  	$user_id = get_current_user_id();
  	//Current User/Agent Data
  	$get_user = get_userdata( $user_id );
  	$user_phone = get_user_meta( $user_id, 'u_phone1', true );
	update_user_meta( $user_id, u_phone1, $v_phone );

	//OR another way to query
	$user_email = $get_user ->user_email;

Anywho, lots of cool stuff you can do.
