Poor Support


Posted on 28 March 2018
30
Functionality
Extension seemed promising. The ability to map out relationships visually is extremely appealing.
35
Ease of use
It took several minutes to figure out how to add individuals to the tree. After figuring it out, it was a bit smoother.
1
Support
Support leaves much to be desired. The online chat rep was less than polite and left me feeling like I made a horrible purchase.
20
Documentation
Docs are in a silo. Each set per product. Theme issues that may affect all product can only be read if you purchased the one it's under.
20
Value for money
There are quite a few free systems that do the same thing. Had it worked out of the box properly it would have been worth my time.
I used this to: A genealogy site for my mother in law.

Works good, But...


Posted on 21 August 2016
28
Functionality
It functions as long as you don't try to use it with other templates than the standard fare like Protostar..
I had to make protostar default
68
Ease of use
Once setup, it is a bit off the wall to use and has some limitations. Better than some other add-ons, but worse than some as well.
55
Support
Pending support for over 18 hours now, Using it with a top line template that a client chose, it will not show up. That is very bad.
23
Documentation
It is there, but less than ideal!
72
Value for money
Not really, but seems to be the only option right now.
I used this to: A family website. For them to keep a growing family tree.
Owner's reply: http://imgur.com/a/ltByh Full screenshot here of your support ticket, so everybody understands just how difficult you made it for us to support you.

Also, like I mentioned, the problem was with your template.
100
Functionality
It's very unique and looks different from other genealogy software. Works great and beautiful.
100
Ease of use
No problem using, very easy
100
Support
Very fast! I have problem uploading big gedcom file and Simbunch reply immediately
100
Documentation
Easy to understand with good explanation
90
Value for money
Not free like other genealogy software but not expensive
I used this to: I use this for my Joomla website. I choose Joomla because of SImgenealogy is the only genealogy software for Joomla. It is also the only genealogy software that have the unique display which is very nice.

One of the amateurs


Posted on 30 December 2015
31
Functionality
Try to be a genealogy-solution. Lot of problems: Genealogy is an exact disciplin, collecting people, bios, dates. Too many problems avoid it
40
Ease of use
Easy to get, easy to buy. Calendar cannot be used correctly, Children shown on the foot and top of Person? 200 years old P.shown as living
52
Support
As calendar not usable, they offer you extra fields for the dates additional? instead of correcting. Amateur software makers
52
Documentation
Having Demosite, U must test all rabish situation by yourself. Users have to pay, are testers to help develop this genealogy-rpgram
3
Value for money
NO value, you buy, test it, as newby in Genealogy, after short time you uninstall it, and get no money back for this not-genealogy program
I used this to: Can not use the programm

Not worth the money


Posted on 25 December 2015
24
Functionality
beautiful layout, but the funcitionality is not good. This is NOT (yet) a fully featured extension as advertized.
24
Ease of use
It is NOT possible to import an existing family-tree e.g. via a GEDCOM-file. That means you have to rebuild your tree from scratch...
8
Support
this extension should be fully featured,but i asked for the import-functionality,and get the answer:we did not mention GEDCOM-functionality.
10
Documentation
very insufficient
10
Value for money
for the state of development it is (still) too expensive.
I used this to: I used this for one day, but I do not use it anymore, because it does not reflect my needs. This is especially since import from an existing familytree is impossible.
At the moment this importfunctionality is added, it is a great program, but certainly not yet .
