Are you looking for a user friendly Joomla survey extension? Don't waste hours trying to figure out other complex extensions, purchase BF Survey now and in minutes you will have a professional looking survey in your own Joomla environment. Simply create a survey category, add questions, then add a menu item, it really is that easy.

Joomla 3.2.2 or greater is recommended, but BF Survey will also work on Joomla 2.5.

Subscription also includes access to all versions of our survey products, including BF Survey Plus and BF Survey Pro (for Joomla 1.5).

Don't take our word for it, download our trial version of the survey software and install it on your own website. This way you can try before you buy and see if this software will meet your survey needs. You can also access all the documentation for our survey software without needing to purchase anything, so you can see exactly if our survey software will meet your requirements before you commit to purchase.

Whilst this survey software can be used for simple surveys and forms such as your contact form, it can also scale up to create much more complex surveys and applications. BF Survey version 2 is written using Akeeba's Framework On Framework (F0F), which means that you have the flexibility of overriding all the front end output to completely customise the survey to suit your website. F0F allows you to create media overrides, so you can copy the CSS files used in your survey into your site template, and create your overridden version that will never get affected by software updates.

By default, BF Survey version 2 creates mobile responsive surveys using bootstrap, and your radio and checkbox survey fields are converted to labels so that they are easier to press when accessing your survey on a mobile device. That said, if you don't like this feature you can create a javascript override for your survey and turn off this feature.

You can have fields on your survey show or hide based on answers to previous survey questions, and this is AJAX driven so you don't need to refresh the page to see the change, it occurs immediately when you select the option in the survey question.

There is a terminate immediately option, where you can end the survey and redirect the user to a particular URL if they select a specific option. This can be useful for surveys where you want to qualify the participant, or in cases where the rest of your survey just isn't relevant to them.

For each survey, there is a stats view that shows a graphical representation of your survey data, and you can control who has access to see this information. There is also reporting capabilities, where you can select your criteria and fields required, and generate PDF files of your survey data, or export to csv for use in Excel.

The survey software will automatically create a database table to store the data for each survey, and each question has its own field to store the answers to that survey question.

The product description touched on several of my requirements, the demo was impressive, and the previous customer reviews were sterling... so I took a chance and got the subscription...

The only problem, I had trouble uploading to my server. Sent a support request, got an answer back very quickly...with the correct solution... and all while he was out of town. So... support is top-notch.

After getting it loaded, which was painless... i went through the simple configurations, then began setting up a survey. My first survey (sort of large and detailed) was setup within an hour, functioned perfectly and looked great.

Conclusion: I seriously doubt there's another survey component out there that's a better value. The product itself is intuitive... simple to learn and feature-rich. Support was fast and accurate.

I needed to ditch 'survey monkey' and bring complex assessments with question logic into a single site and BF Survey made it possible.

I needed to migrate from J2.5 and the developer was particularly helpful and responsive to my suggestions.

Now that I’m finally J3+ I have found that the extension is stable, clean and rather more clever than you initially recognise and provides way more functionality than I could have ever extracted from the chimp. Love the responsive feel. Perfect solution. Buy it before the developer realises that its under priced.

Excellent product with excellent support service. I had to migrate from a competitive product, and found BF Survey Plus easy and intuitive to use and with very professionally looking surveys. Tim was more than helpful and responsive in helping me to sort out a few niggles on my side which had nothing to do with his product.

If I could give 'excellent plus' I would.
I used an old version on an earlier site and upgraded to 'Plus on J3.1.5
Tim was helpful on upgrade, but fantastic when I hit a problem, which turned out to be nothing to do with BF, rather a residual error in J3.1.4 - which my site did not even think it was running!
Sent him an access ID before I went to bed, and by the time I got up he had tracked down an solved my problem - service simply without parallel.
Tim and his product deserve our support!!

Been using the old BF Survey Pro on my old 1.5 site.

After migrating to Joomla 2.5 i needed a lot of help.

As usual, Tim at Tamlyn Creative, took an enormous amount of pressure of me and sorted my bungling attempts.

The new BF Survey Plus is as good as the old version, in fact it gets better.

Well worth the cost - making using surveys and contact forms a breeze.

Plus you get the most understanding and comprehensive support that Tim offers.

His knowledge and abilities to just go into your site and fix it, is beyond amazing.

Highly recommended.

A component with a lot of features. Easy to understand and you can create a survey very fast.
The support is exellent too. There is a documentation and a forum, that helps. Any special question will be promptly answered by the developer.

A fanastic product with great support. Has been easy to use and modify to my needs. Any questions or queries have been answered very promptly by the developer. A reasonable price for a quality product. Couldn't ask for more than that. Thank you!

I have this on a couple of websites and my clients now make their own surveys and link them to menus no problems.

This was a breeze to install and configure for the best use for my client. I needed something more extensive than many forms available, the client needed a multi-page form for their internal use with some custom configuration. So I had to configure it a little more than an out of the box solution which, being a bit of newbie to Joomla, meant I did something wrong (doh!). Was this a problem? At first I thought so until I contacted Tim, one word.. Amazing!! I'm based in the UK, Tim is in Austraila - this fella took the time to diagnose and correct an error that I did on my part! But he didn't stop there.. oh no... I suggested an additional function that would really help my client, the following week he'd coded it and supplied me with a specific update! I really enjoyed our email conversations and the update he applied will probably roll into his next update when all users will benefit! Having had to figure out some components from other developers, left to ones self, with little or no support, Tim and BF Survey Plus, have convinced me that there's really creative, personable, dedicated and gifted people in the Joomla community! Thanks Tim!!! Best, Wayne

A comprehensive yet simple to use extension. It installs easily and a problem I had was dealt with quickly and effectively. Needs few improvements on the formatting, but I'd recommend this.
