I did have an issue with the component and was a little disappointment with the lack of a forum. BUT when I contacted the proform team they resolved my issue within the day, without any work on my half! Fantastic support given here so please don't be afraid to contact them for any problems as in my experience they were extremely helpful and very quick to respond.
It is so easy to use that a joomla newby could use it straight away.
The level of support that I have received has been outstanding. They replied to two of my emails withing 10 minutes with a fix both times :)
- good looking forms
- great positioning options compared to some other form builders
- that's it
- no forum, only private support through an service key (support through service key requires you to remove your server development password if you have any - very annoying, my site got indexed after this and it wasn't finished)
- only one email address can be used
- very few fields to actually choose from
- no multipage (or i could not understand how it works?)
All in all looks good but it's still a young product. It misses a lot of functionality for more complex forms (even if it's named ADVANCE). If the developers add more options i will be more than happy to write another review.
Yes, we like fair users (If this ever is a customer because we couldn't find any support tickets regarding all these requests)
The helpdesk system we are using is a hight tech support system which normally is only provided by enterprise companies.
We give premium personal support for each issue; why we think our system is much better than leave customers on their own with a forum.
The statement of being only able to use one email address IS NOT TRUE!
Regarding to the "few fields":
Proforms supports all existing form fields. There are no form fields missing. There are no more HTML form fields available at all!
Please note that Proforms is a form component and not a application builder!
Yes, there is no multi paging built in yet.
BUT WE DON'T PROMOTE PROFORMS AS OF BEING ABLE TO DO THIS!
You have had many opportunities to inform you before purchasing a subscription. We provide many information sites, screenshots, demos, admin demos and at last a FREE basic version.
In another review marcrou is talking about his "perfectionism". A perfectionist would have read all information and tested the free version and knew that there is no multipaging for Proforms yet ;)
He is very far away to be a perfectionist.
This is the same as if you purchase a normal car and ask yourself why it has no hanger.
Yes ... because you have not purchased a car with a hanger!
At last the review becomes absurd as he's talking about "misses a lot of functionallity for more comples forms"
Again a case of "non perfectionism".
We have a built in app system. There is a huge amount of apps made for complex functions.
Sure if he he purchases a subscription which doesn't contain apps he is not be able to use them.
Probably this is the source of his non fair and very weak review.
For all others who are reading this.

Your Mad4Media Team
Having built many sites in the bast, this was my first deep dive into the world of Joomla! (I won't mention the other CMS systems I've used... but won't use again) and am incredibly please with the outcome as is my client. I did, however make a newbie error embedding a component into a page instead of using a plug-in, but the guys Mad4Media had me on the right track in no time.
Perfect product, perfect support - wonderful experience. I can't recommend this/them enough. Keep up the great work guys.
We submitted an annoying question to the Proforms support, and had a swift, positive and helpful response.
Our company would recommend both the extension and Mad4Media's excellent support.
Downloaded and installed the free Proforms basic package and within 5 minutes was putting together good looking forms... I'll definitely be purchasing the commercial version.....
I required something that was far more advanced than what any joomla based forms component provide so I contacted Mad4Media who got back to me extremely quickly and built me a custom app (well 2 to be exact) that did exactly what my client required. The communication was second to none.
Verry verry good service
Thank you for the review.
We like to correct one thing.
Our company is called Mad4Media and not Mad4Joomla.
Mad4Joomla is just the previous version of Proforms.
Proforms is a fork of Mad4Joomla.
My frustration level with other form extensions got me to a point that I was working on just a fillable PDF because I'd had it.
I was skeptical about trying Proforms, I fully admit it - and I was not prepared to purchase anything other than the bare minimum (tired of wasting money you know).
BUT - I am SO loving it!! I've done a lot of back & forth to make the form "perfect" but it's so freaking easy once you understand the concept of building the form on templates.
I explained it to my husband like this - think of it like Legos.
But, with these Legos, you build each Lego block yourself (template), then you use the blocks you made & build a Legotastic creation (the form)
I had a question that I could not find the answer to in Proforms wonderful helpdesk feature - so I submitted a request (I was hesitant because I hate to ask for help, and I hate to appear stupid) - they got back to me pretty quickly with a straight forward solution to my dilemma.
All 'round would recommend this - I'm going to upgrade to the 365-day package!
In our latest project our customer asked for a "very simple order form" with a unique number. I've asked the Mad4Media team if this could be developed and integrated into the form.
I was surprised to hear that, overnight, they created an app to solve this.
What a great service !!
Thanks to the team.
