Easy to set up, easy to work with, easy to understand – a perfect companion plugin for Gravity Forms! We needed the ability to pull data into a form (using GravityWiz Perks), modify it in the form, and then push it back to a Custom Post Type and this did that last part with seamless ease. Developer – I’d love to buy you a coffee, do you have a link?

Very simple straight-forward easy to use plugin. I hope there will be an additional feature where we can update a post into a remote WP site.

Plugin does exactly what the name says. Works perfectly, I would like support for custom taxonomies.

Hello, I appreciate the intention of this plugin but I do not see how I can update the entry, when I go to the form and look for the published entries I do not see any option to edit them, but if I reload the form does not work either, if you would be so kind to make an explanatory video and / or demonstrative I think we would all appreciate it, because it is not understood after doing what you indicated as we are going to update.
