Create a new form in Gravity Forms from a CSV

Gravity Forms Entry Importer allows you to create a new form when you are uploading your CSV file. This can save you time when you need to build a new form for a large CSV of data.

The New Form functionality is also great if you want to easily create a new Gravity Form with a large assortment of radio button choices, checkboxes, drop-down options, and more. When you are creating a new form, Entry Importer will automatically add all the values from your CSV as new form options. This is a huge time-saver.
