Quick Access to Gravity Forms Resources – Time Saver & Helper Tool!

This small and lightweight plugin just adds a lot Gravity Forms related resources to your toolbar / admin bar. Also links to all admin settings pages pages of the plugin are included, making the life of form administrators/ developers a lot easier. So you might just switch from the fontend of your site to read current ‘Entries’ or just ‘Add a new Form’ etc. How cool is that? 🙂 Also, support for all official and lots of third-party add-ons is included!

Please note: The plugin requires the Gravity Forms base plugin, a paid premium product released by Rocketgenius Inc. (via

Add-Ons/ Plugin Support

At this time the plugin out of the box supports also all third-party Gravity Forms related plugins (only the ones with settings pages!):

Special Features

  • Not only supporting official Gravity Forms/ Gravity Help sites ALSO third-party and user links – so just the whole Gravity Forms ecosystem 🙂
  • Link to downloadable German language packs – only displayed when German locales are active (de_DE, de_AT, de_CH, de_LU, gsw)
  • Link to Dutch language/ translation plugin – only displayed when Dutch locales are active (nl_NL or nl)
  • Link to Spanish language/ translation plugin – only displayed when Spanish locales are active (es_ES or es_PE)
  • NOTE: I would be happy to add more language/locale specific resources and more useful third-party links – just contact me!

As the name suggests this plugin is primarily intended towards website admins/ developers. Beside the forum, support links etc. the main plugin settings links will only appear if the current user has the appropiate rights/ capabillities for these. This just goes hand in hand with the very same user rights Gravity Forms itself uses to display its menu entries. So also Editors or any user with the proper rights could view ‘Entries’ etc (you could easily tweak all those roles & caps with the awesome “Members” plugin!).
