For this course, we’re going to need the following plugins:
- Gravity Forms
- Gravity Forms User Registration Add-On
- GravityView Advanced Filtering extension
- Populate Anything by Gravity Wiz
We’re going to assume you already have Gravity Forms and GravityView installed on your website, so we’ll focus on installing the remaining three plugins.
Installing the Gravity Forms User Registration Add-On
The Gravity Forms User Registration add-on allows you to register new users on your website after they submit a form.
To install the add-on, hover over Forms in your WordPress menu and click Add-Ons. Now scroll down to the User Registration Add-On and click “Install”. After installing the add-on, make sure to click “Activate”.
Installing the GravityView Advanced Filtering extension
You’ll also need to install the GravityView Advanced Filtering extension. To do this, hover over Views, click Manage Add-Ons, scroll down to “Advanced Filtering” and click “Install”.
After installing the add-on, make sure to click “Activate”.
Installing the Gravity Wiz Populate Anything Perk (optional)
Installing Populate Anything is optional, but it will allow us to automate part of the process. After installing Gravity Perks, hover over Forms and click on Perks. Now, scroll down to “Populate Anything” and click “Activate”.
That’s it! Now we can start constructing our teacher-student dashboard.
