Easy to use and works fantastically. Only thing I'd say, improve your so called "demo" by about... 500%! There's so much more you can do with chronoforms than that and yoiu simply don't care enough to show it off. Demo is awful! I expected more from you. The product itself gets the 5 stars. Highly recommend this product, even with the crap demo.

I've been using Chronoforms for years and in my opinion it's the best and most user-friendly form creator out there. It's really easy to use, considering how advanced you can make your forms if you need to.

The support team is also very friendly and helpful.

Havin tested many form generators in the last years, I find chronoforms the most intuitive one.
I had some bugs in the free version. Sometimes the form cannot be connected with the database. I think it's a javascript problem. Nevertheless - thanks a lot for this extension!

Chronoforms has been my extension of choice for adding forms for years. It's amazing how much you get for free; it's not only the whole component, but also access to a top quality support and docs (remember, for free). And if you need more, you have paid stuff available.

On the technical side, you get full control over forms: layout, behaviour, custom CSS/Javascript/PHP, integration with Joomla core components and functions, integration with many 3rd party extensions... and yes, most of it for free.

I can't thank "Greyhead" enough for providing this great component for years.

This component takes Joomla far beyond imaginable capabilities. I keep discovering new and exciting ways to use it. It should just be included in Joomla's core, it's indispensable. Great job!

I have been using the latest ChronoForms and I have to say it is absolutely brilliant. Very easy to use and if by chance you do get hung up on something all you have to do is post a question in their support forum and Max or Bob will quickly reply.

A++ for ChronoForms support and product.

No matter how great is the product, if there is no support from the developer, the product won't be successful. Chronoform has a passionate team working on solving customer's problem. Great product and good team, thanks for your hard work!

Very configurable component, you can do almost anything. Simple forms can be done in few minutes, complex ones require more time but with the possibility to use custom js and php code you can do almost any kind of form.
Support is also great both on the public forums and sending a direct support request.

Very configurable component, tried others, free and commercial and settled on this because of its flexibility.

I made a support query for domain validation (I didn't read the form correctly) took 18 minutes from my request to solution. Stunning !!! Thank you very much

I have been using Chronoforms for years. Each iteration of the program keeps getting better. I have used the program for everything from basic contact forms to complex forms that export the results as encrypted PDFs. The developers response to questions is typically speedy although I can usually find an answer to my question in their forums or online videos. As this extension can do so much there is a bit of a learning curve. Once mastered you will find you need no other form builder.

This is the first time I've used ChronoForms and I absolutely love it! Setup and customization are too easy. If you're looking for a great form extension, look no further!

Chronoforms to the rescue. Thank you. An easy to use and very flexible extension. I was frustrated like so many others (in the forums) that the contact forms built into Joomla sent messages back from the e-mail settings of the site, rather than from the e-mail address entered into a form. With Chronoforms, I've overcome this problem. Leaving the static from blank and using the dynamic from field, means that any form received if from the person entering their e-mail into a form, not from the site. Excellent, especially as this means I can just click reply to the form message and it goes to the respondee.
Chronoforms is easy to install, manage and once you get into the way the processing works, it's easy. Two Wizards make that process even easier. A great bit of software, thanks.

IF for no other reason, Chronoforms believes in supporting ChronoForms and other Chrono products. Max has always answered any reach out when needed. If you are having trouble understanding a product that required forms and data ChronoForms and its developer will help. I have never failed to get answers and support for the product.
