How to connect two forms using the Nested Forms field with the Multiple Forms

If you have a form using the Nested Forms field ( a Perk from GravityWiz) and you want to create a View combining information from that form and a child form, that's possible with our Multiple Forms extension.

As an example, here's our parent form:

Players is a Nested Forms field that submits entries to the Nested Forms Child form:

The Parent Entry ID meta column is used to connect the child entries with the parent entry: Screenshot of Gravity Forms Entries screen for the "Nested Forms Child" form. The Parent Entry ID column is circled.

These two entry meta fields (Entry ID from parent form and Parent Entry ID from the child form) are the ones we are going to use to connect the forms with the Multiple Forms extension in a View:

Now, we can add fields from both forms in our View:

And this is the end result:
