Hi there, I am really interested in this plugin. Does it have the functionality to expire a group membership after a specified period of time?

We have experimented with Groups for WooCommerce, and this allows you to set expirations for all groups or none. What we need is the ability to add someone to a group for an indefinite period of time, and a second group for a specified period of time.

Hope that makes sense!


Many thanks for the suggestion, this would be a great improvement for the plugin and I’ll certainly take your suggestion into account. I can’t promise you an ETA on it though.

If it’s an option, expirations could be handled by scheduling group removal hooked on the action that is fired when a user is added to a group. You’d have to implement that yourself, if it’s of any help you can have a look at the `groups_created_user_group` action


I have a pre-purchase question:

I am running BuddyPress, Gravity Forms, User Registration, Groups, and GEO My WP. I have locations enabled for Groups, and allow for users to search for local groups within a certain milage of their location. I want people who register on my Gravity Form to be auto added to a group based on their location. For example, if you put your City, State, and Country as San Diego, California, United States, you would be added to the San Diego, California, and United States Group automatically.

Is this possible? Thanks!

There is a problem where the Paypal checkbox is not working as advertised. I set it to add people who pay into a group called “paid”. But it does not seem to care if they actually pay or not, it throws everybody who submits the form into the group. Even then, making the “paid” group was a hack to start with, because I’d really like to add people to groups based on Gravity Forms checkboxes but only if they pay… seems even if the Payment checkbox worked as advertised, I’d have to choose that OR add them automatically based on form fields, not both. Any way around that? I tried to post on your own support page but it hasn’t shown up after a few days now.

Hi, what exact settings are you using please? You can also submit admin access to support at itthinx dot com and we’ll have a look.

Thanks, I replied to you over on your website.

Hi, I am trying to use checkboxes to list all of the groups that I have available. I would like users to be a be able to check each group they would like to join. So I need to make it so based on each checkmark they select it would join them to the associated group. For example if they check “option A” it would add them to my “option A” group. How can I do this?

Nevermind, I figured it out

Ok thanks for the update.

We are seeing a problem with the Gravity Forms Groups plugin to place new registrations in groups chosen from a multi-select. When I choose 2 or 3 groups from the multi-select field it adds the user to ALL groups. Is this issue with the multi-select? Do I have to use checkboxes or simple dropdown instead? Please advise.

Pre-sale question: I have a gravity form where user would be able to select the primary group (drop-down) and Other groups (check boxes). Primary Group is restricted to 1 option and multiple groups can be selected under other groups. When an user selects a group, he should be added to that group and all the permissions given to that group should be applied to that user. Is that possible with this plugin?

Is there any possibility of adding multiple groups functionality in future? Basically I want users to choose multiple groups by selecting the check box. They will be added to those groups automatically.

Many thanks for the suggestion, we’ll certainly take it into account but can’t promise when such a possibility would be included yet.

PS The above comment is regarding multiple fields, if you only need one field where multiple groups can be chosen, then this is already an option.

We have a multi select field on a new user registration form that allows new submissions to select user groups to join. What values get matched from the form field to the user group to accomplish this group assignment? There is no documentation for this. Is it the form field value and the group slug? Or is it the form field value and the user group title? We are observing that sometimes this assignment fails and I assume its due to the matching not working properly. Please advise.

Hi, this is documented here: and on the panel “Group Memberships Group Memberships for Form Submissions” where you can see that field values are interpreted as group names, the groups must exist and match in spelling and case.

I see. So the form input value must match Group “name” and not group slug to verify?

Yes, it’s the name (there actually is no “slug” for groups).


I just purchased the Groups Gravity Forms plugin, and I’d like my users to be able to suscribe more than just one group at a time when they go to the subscription form.



See this please: Example : Creating a form that allows a user to choose from a selection and be added to the corresponding groups.


Is this plugin compatible with Magic Tooltips for Gravity Forms? This is the plugin I refer to:

Hi, thanks for asking but we can’t guarantee that these will be compatible … never heard about that one in fact :) Maybe if you check against any possible conflicting features that are vital for your deployment.

Hello. I want to alow the registration of users via Group Memberships for User Registrations. And the users should be added to a specific group based on an “secret” name that we will provide to the user. I do not want to show a list of group options. I think this is possible in the Group Memberships based on Form Submissions as you show this option : “BASED ON A FORM FIELD: If enabled and field is selected, the submitted field values will be interpreted as group names and the user will be added to those groups if they exist. But I want to use it for users who are not yet registered, so I understand that I will have to use Group Memberships for User Registrations. Can I still allow users to write down the name of the secret group (previously provided by email) when using Group Memberships for User Registrations? In other words, is “Add users to groups based on a form field” also available in Group Memberships for User Registrations? Thanks.


I don’t think that this plugin would be suitable mainly because what you describe sounds like you need some customized solution for your requirements. I don’t quite see the relation between the “secret” name and how you’d want it to be mapped to a group, maybe it would be simpler to password protect the page where people can sign up and then simply show the real group names. In this latter case, you could consider using this solution but it really depends on your use case and if that password protection would be an option.

HI, I am searching for a plugin, that automatically adds users, that subscribe via gravity forms (with “Gravity Forms User Registration Add-On”) to certain Buddypress groups! Does your plugin support Buddypress groups? Thanks, Matt

Hi Matt, thanks for asking but this plugin works with the Groups plugin. BP groups are not supported with this. Cheers
