Allowing a user to edit a View

Editing a View requires permissions that are normally only assigned to Administrators. 

This is because:

Views allow users to display HTML, which is a capability that is restricted in WordPress. The unfiltered_html permission must be granted to non-admins in order for them to edit a View. Please be aware that this permission should only be granted to trusted users who are in higher-level roles.

Warning: The instructions below show how to add the capability to all users who have an existing role. It is safer to create a new role that has the unfiltered_html capability and add users to that role. Read how to do that here.

Also, when creating new Views, you can also create a new Gravity Forms form directly from the View editor. The gravityforms_create_form capability to create new forms is also required in order to use the View editor: Getting Started: Choosing a Form and a View Layout.

Install and Activate the Members plugin:
