Getting Started

So you want to start using the plugin? Great! Let me tell you how to install it. You've got two options. You can use Normal WordPress and Bedrock. But first let me fill you in on the dependencies.


This plugin is an add-on for Gravity Forms so you will definitely need that. Also, the plugin has some system requirements:

  • PHP 7.2+
  • Gravity Forms 2.0+ (try to keep this updated)
  • php-zip
  • php-xml

The plugin checks for most dependencies, so you should know ahead of time if you're missing anything.

So let's install it, shall we?

Normal WordPress

If you are using a normal installation of WordPress, go to the Plugin section and then select Add New. Then search for GravityExport and you will find it. Click Install and then Activate.

It is also possible to download the plugin and then upload it to the wp-content/plugins folder manually.


If you've never heard of Bedrock, then this probably isn't for you. However, I highly recommend you research this and try it out. It's way safer than the plain ol' WordPress and it comes with the benefit of composer!

To install using Bedrock, execute the following command:

composer require doekenorg/gf-entries-in-excel

If you have Bedrock dependencies that require the latest version of PhpSpreadsheet, such as Roave Security Advisories, you can specify the dev-bleeding-edge version that comes with the updated dependencies and requires PHP 7.3+.

  1. Update your Bedrock's composer.json file by adding the following repo:

    "repositories": [
        "type": "vcs",
        "url": "[email protected]:GFExcel/base.git"
  2. Install the plugin by running composer require doekenorg/gf-entries-in-excel:dev-bleeding-edge
