A Gravity Forms Add-on: Change Who Created An Entry

Download the “Change Entry Creator” Gravity Forms Add-on

Change User for an Entry In Gravity Forms

This simple plugin allows you to edit who created an entry in Gravity Forms.

When you have an entry from Gravity Forms that you want to edit, you can edit almost anything, except for the entry assignment; who created the entry.

Activate the plugin and you will see a drop-down input with each user on your site.

  • Only users with entry entry editing capability will be able to see the drop-down and edit the entry (the `gravityforms_edit_entries` capability)
  • Select a new user from the drop-down, update the entry, and the entry creator will be updated.
  • A note will be added to the entry with the following information:
    • Who changed the entry creator
    • When the change took place
    • Who the previous entry creator was

Simply upload the plugin, activate it, and you’ll see the drop-down in the Edit Lead “Info” box.

You already have Gravity Forms Directory installed, you don’t need to install this.
Delete the plugin using FTP is the way to get rid of the fatal error, unfortunately.

Dear Zack,

Can I just put the gravity-forms-change-entry-creator.php file in the root of the gravity forms plugin?

Kind regards,


If you get a fatal error, it’s because you already have Directory installed. Directory has this functionality already. Just delete the plugin.
If you don’t have Directory installed, post the fatal error here.

Is it possible that this plugin recognizes people and allow them to edit their own posts even if they are not logged in?

Hi Zack! I need your help the gravity form plug in for EDD is not working properly with the gravity form update. It is not allowing a user to add a quantity can you please help me?

Hi Zack,

is it possible to add this field to a form? So, The user can change who created an entry when submitting a form.


Just wondering if there is an up-to-date to this useful plugin. The version I have has just been using is now throwing an error (/wp-content/plugins/gravity-forms-change-entry-creator.php:19 [unknown]).

Perhaps it’s the numer of users? the line thowing the error is

foreach($users as $user) {
$output .= 'ID.'"'.selected((int)$lead["created_by"] === (int)$user->ID, true, false).'>'.$user->display_name.' ('.$user->user_nicename.')';
