Gravity Flow v2.5.10 Released

Gravity Flow version 2.5.10 is now available via auto-update and for download from the account area.

This is a maintenance release with some new features, bug fixes and security enhancements. We recommend that customers upgrade as soon as possible.


Gravity Flow reports available on the front-end via shortcode

The reports page have always displayed a variety of charts for completed workflows and average duration by month, step, and assignee to help you identify potential bottlenecks in your processes – in real-time. However, until this release, you have only been able to share access to those insights to users of your website with admin interface access. Now, with one shortcode (with page=”reports” attribute) or a Gravity Flow block, you can allow access via the front-end of your website.

  • It’s possible to display a specific report without the filter UI above. The display_filter shortcode attribute can be used to remove the filter bar user interface.
  • The reports filter can be prepopulated with the following shortcode attributes for the reports shortcode: range, form, category, step_id and assignee.

Approval Step – Optional confirmation prompt setting
We have probably all mis-clicked a button that caused an action we weren’t 100% ready to. Now, if you activate the optional ‘Require Confirmation’ step setting on approval step(s), all approve/reject buttons will have an extra browser based confirmation to ensure the action the assignee chose was intentional.

Added support for Merge Tags on Workflow Step Conditions
Defining a step condition(s) to control if, or under what data scenarios, a particular step should be performed is one of the most used features of Gravity Flow. With this release, you can now include any merge tag in the step condition criteria for even more flexibility and conditional logic goodness. Branch on!

Enhanced Integrations

The larger Gravity Forms ecosystem continues to evolve providing more/easier ways for you to build forms and integrate where/how that data gets used. Gravity Flow continues to evolve apace ensuring that you or your assignees can always manage your entry data and control when such integrations will be triggered through steps in your workflows.

Support for Pods Gravity Forms Add-On
This was one of the most frequently requested integrations. Pods allows you to create Custom Content Types and Custom Fields within your WordPress DB without writing PHP code. If the Gravity Forms Pods add-on is active on your site, you can now define a Pods step type in any workflow to trigger updates to any of these custom content types.

Support for Gravity Wiz eCommerce Fields on the User Input Step
The GravityWiz eCommerce Fields provides support for Tax, Discounts, and Subtotal fields on your forms. Now, you can allow any assignee to customize an order during a user input step involving these field types.

Support for Gravity Forms EmailOctopus Add-On
EmailOctopus is a great choice for anyone looking to grow their business through email marketing. If the Gravity Forms EmailOctopus Add-on is active on your site, you can now define a step type for it in any workflow to trigger a beautiful emails that look great across all devices.
