Known limitations of Multiple Forms

The Multiple Forms plugin is still in beta, which means that some native GravityView functionalities that usually work on a simple View still don't work on a View with multiple joined forms.

Here's a list of known limitations from the current version 0.3-beta.1 .

Can't specify fields for editing

Since each joined form has its own link to edit entries, it's not possible to specify which fields can be edited. The Edit Entry tab must be kept empty for entry editing to work.

The Edit Entry link must link to each form

If you wish to allow entry editing, a link for each form must be added to the View.

Merge Tags from Joined Forms

It's not yet possible to use Merge Tags from joined forms inside a single Custom Content field.

Advanced Filters support

Only fields from the main form are supported on the Advanced Filters

Merge Tags on the Edit Entry tab

Merge Tags added inside a Custom Content field on the Edit Entry tab won't be parsed.

Impossible to edit Nested Form fields

GravityView supports editing Nested Forms fields, but if the View has a joined form, editing a Nested Form field doesn't work.

It's not possible to specify a field from a joined form in the Search Bar

While it's currently not possible to add individual fields from a joined form into the Search Bar, the search will work if the "Search Everything" option is added to the Search Bar widget.
