Gravity Forms To Excel AddOn


This Gravity Forms AddOn saves form data into a given Excel document and attaches it to notification emails. You don’t need any programming skills to get native Excel documents back as the result of your Gravity Forms web form. After uploading your Excel 2007 file (.xslx, other versions are not supported) the form data is saved into one sheet (which you can define) of your document. You can then select to which notification emails this Excel file should be attached to. Using simple Excel formulas (=A1) you can fill out complex Excel sheets with data from the web form. No further export or import of CSV data is required.

Operating instructions

  1. Create your form with Gravity Forms
  2. Give all your fields admin field labels (under the tab “Advanced”)
  3. Create your notification emails
  4. Open the GF2Excel form settings, upload your Excel file, type in your sheet number to insert the form data and finally select the notifications you would like to attach the filled in Excel file.
  5. Submit your form and open your Excel file. Connect your actual form fields through formulas (=A1) with data of the sheet which is filled by Gravity Forms. The admin field labels will help you to associate the data with the form fields.
  6. Open the WP4O-GF2Excel form settings again and upload the Excel file with your formulas.
  7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 until you are satisfied with the result.
  8. Be happy 🙂

Can i use Excel templates containing macros and form fields?

No. Based on the functional range of the PHPExcel library we use in this AddOn there are some limitations regarding to the Excel files and the contents within these files.

  • We only support Excel 2007 (.xslx) (more formats on the wishlist)
  • We do not support macros (on the wishlist)
  • We do not support Excel form fields like buttons
