RentPress: Gravity Forms Add-On

Table of Contents

Requirements

You must have RentPress plugin (version 7.3 or later) installed and Gravity Forms plugin installed on your site before installing the RentPress: Gravity Forms Add-on plugin.

The latest version of RentPress can be downloaded here: https://wordpress.org/plugins/rentpress/

The latest version of Gravity Forms can be downloaded here: https://www.gravityforms.com/

Installation

Go to the Plugins page of WordPress, click on Add New, then search for “RentPress” then Install and Activate the RentPress: Gravity Forms Add-on plugin.

Connect Lead Destination

Navigate to Gravity Forms’ “Settings” tab and click on the RentPress Forms tab.

To use the rest of the plugin, you will need to select your 3rd party API, either RentCafe or Entrata, and input your Leads API Username and Leads API Password. Then click Update Settings to save your credentials.

Once you click Save, we will create a form for your selected lead destination. You can choose to use that form or use RentPress to connect your CRMs to any existing forms.

Feed Setup

Navigate to the Forms tab of Gravity Forms. Click on the form that you would like to gather leads from.

Mouse over the Settings menu for that form, and click on the RentPress Forms tab.

You will see a screen that says you don’t have any feeds configured. Click on “Create One” to create a new feed. That will take you to the Feed Settings screen.

 

For each required field, click on the dropdown menu. If there is more than one option, select the one that relates to the Field on the left side of your screen. If you see a message such as “Please add a ___________ field to your form”, don’t panic! This is perfectly ok and will not affect the functionality of the plugin. If you would like to include that data point, you will need to add a field of the correct type to your form, then you will be able to select that field in the Feeds Settings menu. Once you have selected a Form Field for every Field that you want to send to your 3rd Party API, click the Update Settings button at the bottom of the screen.

Some of the options will already be filled in. This is because the plugin selects fields of the correct type by default, so if you use a Name field on your form, the plugin will automatically select the Name (First) option for First Name. The required fields for your import source will be denoted by red asterisks (*). No other fields are necessary to send to your 3rd Party API, but sending more information may help you!

Note: You may see better performance when not adding your form through AJAX.

And that’s it! You’re all set up. Every time someone submits the form(s) you have added feeds to, RentPress Forms will automatically send their data to your 3rd Party API.

Tips

  • You may see better performance when not adding your form through AJAX.
  • When using RentPress’s included templates, you will see URLs parameters to help pre-populate form fields. When known, you will see values of
