Hmmm, I’ve giving something like this much thought…
As long as there is a one to one relationship to the data you collected with GF to the fields that are supported by Connections you can use the CSV Import. So, I would do that and install Link. Now the next time one of your users log in, their user account will be linked to the their Connections entry allowing them to edit. so this would not require deleting the existing users at all.
Hope that makes sense and helps.12/09/2013 at 2:16 pm #275003
Hi. You can disregard this post. I went ahead and exported the Gravity Forms user registration entries and imported them into connections using CSV import. It was necessary to match the column headers to get it to work.
Now, I’m having an issue with linking directory entries to users. So far, all I get is an empty directory entry when I click on “edit directory entry”. I’ll post a support request in that forum if I can’t get it work.12/09/2013 at 2:19 pm #275004
Hey Steven, you must have published your response as I was writing my update. Thanks. I’m still working on getting the link to function.12/09/2013 at 3:49 pm #275011
Do you have any type of membership plugins installed and activated?12/09/2013 at 5:07 pm #275053
I’m using “members” by Justin Tadlock. I tested it so no conflict there.
The problems was that I was using a plugin called “user-switching” to test how it would work with a given subscriber to no avail. I was able to get the link only after logging in directly as a test user.
Got the import working correctly using your column headers file and mapping the Gravity Forms export to that. One issue was that after prefilling the entry type column with “organization”, it still imported as individual. Solved that by deleting first and last names columns and moving the content to the “contact name” columns.
After some initial bumps, it seems to be working well now. Thanks very much. Now I just need to pick a good template…12/10/2013 at 12:36 pm #275072
Great to hear! I’ve logged the issue with User Switching … I use that plugin myself and can see how it would be useful. I imaging the proper hooks still have to be run so it should be just a matter of making sure Link will run first. But if the hooks I need to have run are not used by User Switching, it will not be possible. I really won’t know until I dig in to that plugins code to see what it is doing on the user switch.
