Creating a Feed for the ConvertKit Add-On


To send information from your Gravity Forms form to the ConvertKit service, you will first need to create a feed. The feed will tell Gravity Forms which ConvertKit form you want to use, how you want the fields to be mapped, and under what conditions you wish for the entry to be sent to the service. This article describes the steps to create a basic feed for the ConvertKit Add-On.

Create a Feed

To create a feed using the ConvertKit Add-On for Gravity Forms, do the following from your WordPress Admin Dashboard:

  1. Click on Forms in the left side menu.
  2. Select the form that you want to use with ConvertKit.
  3. Once within your desired form, hover over Form Settings and click on ConvertKit.
  4. Click Add New to create a new feed. You will be presented with the ConvertKit feed settings screen.

Mapping to Custom Fields

By default, ConvertKit only includes the first name and email address on your subscriber’s profiles, so if you want to map additional fields to the subscriber profile, you will need to create those custom fields within your ConvertKit account first. Refer to this ConvertKit help doc for details: How to Add Custom Fields to Subscribers

Once those custom fields are created in the ConvertKit account, you will see them within the Key dropdown, as seen in the screenshot below (Birthday); select those fields to map additional data to the subscriber profile.

ConvertKit Form Settings Tab

You may have noticed the additional tab, Form Settings, in the Feed Settings screenshot above. The Form Settings tab is used to enable the ConvertKit Creator Network. The Creator Network feature helps you expose your audience to other creators in the ConvertKit community. When someone submits your form, they will see your recommendations. You can learn more about this feature here.
