- Gravity Forms Elite license – includes the ‘Survey’ capability which will produce the horizontal radio button likerts. Gravity Forms Basic license holders should use standard radio buttons, and if CSS competent improve the formatting.
- GFChart All license – includes the ‘Survey Customiser’ capability which allows the segment/bar colours and order to be changed. GFChart Classic license holders will be able to produce charts with the default colours, and will need to order using a simple workaround of numbering segments/bars.
