Getting Started with LifterLMS Gravity Forms
LifterLMS Gravity Forms allows you to require forms to be submitted in order for students to complete lessons.
If you utilize the Gravity Forms User Registration add-on you can additionally replace default LifterLMS user management forms (forms used during checkout, open registration, and account updates) with your custom Gravity Forms.
LifterLMS Gravity Forms does not include access to Gravity Forms itself!
LifterLMS Gravity Forms provides functionality to connect Gravity Forms with LifterLMS.
Gravity Forms is a separate plugin developed, maintained, and supported by a separate company. You can purchase a license to Gravity Forms at gravityforms.com.
To use LifterLMS Gravity Forms, you must first install the add-on dependencies:

After installing and activating the add-on, head to your LifterLMS Integration settings and open click Gravity Forms. Once there, you must Enable the integration for LifterLMS Gravity Forms to function.
When you add a Gravity Form to any lesson in a course, you can configure whether or not that form must be submitted in order for the lesson to be marked as complete. This can be overridden for individual courses and lessons.
The global default settings are configured on the integration’s main settings page found under LifterLMS -> Settings -> Integrations -> Gravity Forms.
Locate the “Lesson Completion” setting and select either:
- Form submission is required for lesson completion
- Form submission is optional
