I am currently giving it another go on a beta site, because it is an important feature for our strategy, but I honestly think I will have to get a custom component built by a team with more attention to detail.
JoomPlace has nice people. Their support staff is honest and helpful... and they readily accept feedback. But it is very clear that they are doing WAAY too many things, resulting in a lot of poor and buggy products.
They should stop developing/supporting most of the components they offer, and focus on building 3-4 very good components max, depending on their resources.
In the case of Personal Goals Manager, it is such a wasted opportunity, there is no competition for it in the Joomla space. They should rebuild it from scratch... and hire better UI/UX Front End Designers.
I migrated over from EasySocial's facebook connect. I asked them if it was possible ot migrate users from EasySocial to JFBConnect, and they replied there are two options. The first option was very neat, it basically does a scan of all the registered e-mails and automatically connects a facebook account to the appropriate Joomla account.
For many the above solution would be all they need... but as I had given my staff custom e-mails that were not connected to facebook, I told them that. Within no time, they wrote the code to import users and shared it with me.
Not only did they post the code on the forum, they sent me a personalized e-mail to follow up, and to inform me that they had come up with a solution.
The solution worked perfectly!
I cannot thank them enough :) Definitely recommended.
and more importantly, The Support that Offlajn provides is incredible.
Aside from Stackideas which I absolutely love, no other component provider can get close to the support level which Offlajn provides. Stackideas and Offlajn are on a level of their own... and on a side note Offlajn offers the best modules for Live Search and Login on the market (and yes they do integrate with Stackideas products)
Jenő Kovács from Offlajn even helped me fix a couple of things that other developers weren't able to fix even if it wasn't his responsibility. I truly wish more developers in the Joomla community were as helpful and kind as him!
In all my years of developing sites with Joomla (and Mambo before that)... Never have I been so excited and grateful for a team of Joomla component developers.
I suggest you take a look at their forum to get an idea of how proactive and helpful their team is. EVERY single problem or question gets answered or solved with a great attitude, and if it is a weekend, and it takes a few hours to reply, they apologize for being slow.
I have owned EasyBlog and EasyDiscuss for a couple of years now, and I bought EasySocial back when it first came out. Words cannot express how grateful I am for the products they make, and the service they provide. They make all their customers feel like we are a part of their team. They involve us in every step of the planning. They constantly are seeking our feedback and acting accordingly.
As an Entrepreneur myself, I have to say, their standard of service inspires. I am constantly learning from their practices.
