Local JSON for Gravity Forms is a backup of a Gravity Form in a .json file that is updated every time a form is updated.
Why You Need It
The problem Local JSON solves: a Gravity Form on a production website needs edits to match the latest version in development.
An additional benefit: you can use Local JSON to put Gravity Forms in version control. The path where the .json files are saved defaults to the
wp-content/uploads/gf-json folder, but the path is filterable. Change it and ship Gravity Forms with a theme or plugin.
Why the Import Forms feature in Gravity Forms core cannot help: Import Forms always inserts forms with a new ID. This detaches the form from old entries, and breaks every page where the form is embedded across the site.
How to Get It
Also Provides a Replace Forms Tab
If a .json backup tool for Gravity Forms is not compelling, you might like the Replace Forms feature better. It works just like the Import Forms tab of the Import/Export page, but replaces existing forms only. Full feature list at https://entriestogooglesheet.com/gravity-forms-power-boost/
