Allow multiple forms as data sources in one GravityView
Use data from multiple forms on one View.
GravityView has always allowed you to display data from a single form. Now with the new Multiple Forms plugin (https://gravityview.co/extensions/multiple-forms/), you can display data in a View from multiple forms at once.
Here’s how a customer described one way they will use this functionality:
> I would specifically like this feature…so that one set of data like a “Geographic Region” with all the details about that region could then be displayed when a “Business” chooses that same “Region” when creating their entry.
This is now easy to create using the Multiple Forms plugin.
Features coming soon to the plugin
Multiple Forms is a complex plugin, so we will be rolling out functionality in stages.
Right now, Multiple Forms combines entries from connected forms into a single row. It cannot display entries from multiple forms as separate rows. We know this is a common request, and we will have it ready in the first quarter of 2019.
This functionality will also be coming soon:
- Connect forms based on the values from connected forms (not just values from the parent form)
- Search specific fields on connected forms (currently only “Search All Fields” and the parent form fields are searchable)
- Add support for the Advanced Filtering extension across joined fields

We specifically went from Directory Add-on to Gravity View for this. I hope I don't have to claim my 30-day refund...
I would agree with this, since I have several forms that need to be search by end users that have several fields in common. If there is a way to tie those fields that happen to be drop downs, can we not make this field searchable across several datasources?
