almost unusble


Posted on 17 July 2016
Functionality

the component is functional and required almost no configruation, but could not make a form using the site CSS

Ease of use

the interface is quite complicated, the steps are not consequential and some test and trial are required

Support

Could not have an answer from support. so I'm giving up and uninstalling.

Documentation

almost non existent

I used this to: nothing at all

Functionality

Very functional and configurable.

Ease of use

Fairly intuitive. However, it would be nice if there were a comprehensive guide or manual, instead of just FAQ's and tutorials.

Support

Always quick to respond

Documentation

See Ease of Use. A comprehensive guide or manual would be nice.

I used this to: I use it for just about every project.

Functionality

Many issues on both captcha and smtp email sending as well. Quite odd behaviour in many times and issues that simply isn't possible to overc

Ease of use

Not easy to setup, with many tricky beats and some bugs as well.

Support

Now here is the frustrating part. After some days of several emails of my part, no answer on the other side to solve my issues.

Documentation

It really didn't help with my issues.

I used this to: Making 2 basic forms for my site.

Functionality

Does everything a form should do and a lot more than this. Possibilities are almost limitless if you are ready to learn some coding.

Ease of use

I would not say this is the easiest form plugin, but it is definitely the one you'll end up coming back to.

Support

Had some big issues with my server and captcha forms. Support was OK, but not always very clear for coding beginers.

Documentation

FAQs and forums will help, but they could be more extensive (especially with V5).


Functionality

All functionalities; drag and drop, multi page, action, email notification, and connected to Chronoconnectivities are great.

Ease of use

It is easy to finish a simple form less than an hour. However, for complex forms, it is a learning curve for me, but I still get those done.

Support

Support from Max and GreyHead are excellent.

Documentation

I have learned a lot from Forums and FAQs and able to accomplish forms as my clients want.


Excellence.

Functionality

Stop looking for a good forms extension because no matter what kind of form you need for joomla, chronoforms will do it.

Ease of use

As with anything that is extremely versatile, it has a learning curve. For such a diverse and complex subject like forms, they did good tho.

Support

Greyhead deserves a medal. I admire his patience and he helps so much. I learned all I needed just from reading his posts on the forums.

Documentation

I didn't have any trouble finding out how to do some pretty complex things. Chronoengine.com has forums, videos, and FAQs. Just google it.

I used this to: Booking form - User enters all relevant info for booking a facility and it gets emailed to an admin.
Articles - User enters a title, text, & uploads a image and it spits out a article, formatted and all.
Feedback - User enters feedback & if it's negative their PC blows up! (jks

Functionality

It definitely has a lot of features and for the right developer this component is probably a great choice.

Ease of use

Seemingly simple tasks become complicated by the interface and lack of intuitiveness.

Support

There are both a vast forum and FAQ but the implied directions are often convoluted and unclear.

Documentation

Same as above.

I used this to: Custom forms on various client websites.

Functionality

Drag & Drop, Multipage, Actions, e-Mail sending, ACL, Database connection (read/write), additional modules and plugins

Ease of use

Very easy to use, but has a learning curve because of the sheer amount of possibilities.

Documentation

Documentation to start understanding the concepts, afterwards the board offers allot of support.

I used this to: Several sites, from a easy little forms to complex connected forms organizing information for up to a hundred users.

powerfull
