This simple and free plugin helps you to easily add a live summary to any gravity forms. No coding required. Simply check the fields you want to see and save your form.
How to set it up
- Install the plugin
- The plugin has its own settings page since v1.1. Find it under Form > Settings > GF Summary Add-on
- Switch on the “Turn on summary” checkbox.
- Decide which fields to show in the summary by checking the checkbox in the field settings of each field that you want to show.
- Summary will now work
- Optional: Show a total at the bottom. This will automatically work if you add any product fields to the form. To turn this total off, simply go back to the settings page and toggle the switch that says “show total in summary”
Conditional logic supported
Currently the following field types are supported:
- Single Line Text
- Paragraph Text
- Drop Down
- Radio Buttons
- Multi Select
Hidden fields are not yet supported.
I have been working on a premium version of this plugin which adds a bunch more options. Currently available PRO features are:
- NEW: Adds a new fieldtype to Gravity that will output a live summary anywhere in your form!
- NEW: Adds support for merge tags inside HTML fields. (currently only working in multi-page forms)
- Make the summary sticky on scroll (very helpful for longer forms)
- Easily change default labels (Title and Total)
- Change the side of the summary (right or left)
- Brand Styler to configure things like fonts, border settings, background settings and padding settings
- Show summary on the confirmation page (experimental setting)
More settings will be added in the near future. My aim is to release new versions every month. More things are possible with this plugin such as moving the button just under the summary or adding a logo above it for example. This and more can currently only be done with custom code snippets. I provide these snippets free for Pro customers.
Compatible with Gravity forms 2.5 and up.

I installed the plugin but I don’t see a summary?
You have to turn on the summary per form. The plugin has its own settings page under form settings. Look for GF Summary Add-on in the form settings menu.
The summary remains empty?
Don’t forget to turn on the checkbox “turn on summary” in the general settings of each field that needs to show in the summary. Still not working? –> please contact me.
The summary is not working when I preview the form?
Gravity forms limits the use of custom styles and scripts in the preview mode. This plugin therefore does not currently work inside preview mode. You will have to place the form on a frontend post or page to fully test it.
I don’t see a total in the summary?
There are two conditions to see the total in the summary. Firstly you have to have at least one product field in the form. Secondly you need to make sure that the “Show total” setting is turned on. You can find this setting on the settings page.
I want to show the summary inside the form instead of next to the form?
This is currently only possible with the Pro version of this plugin. It adds a new field to gravity forms and also adds support for live merge tags in HTML fields. Purchase Pro version here
I want to change the output of the summary, do you help?
Yes, send me a message and tell me what you would like and I will do my best to help you. (Paid service)
