The extension is great. I had no problem implementing it on my client website. However there are some things that can be improved. I had to do some customizations to make it look right but in the end everything was ok.

- 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.
Owner's reply

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.

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.
