Introduction

Address Book

Work Force is a staff/employee listing component. Create departments and add employees to display your company's staff along with images, bios, availability, social media links and contact information. WF uses email cloaking to hide your employees' email addresses from spammers and an optional contact form with captcha security prevents non-human form submissions.

Functionality
The overall functionality is good, but there are many bugs that simply do not get addressed. It's been more than two years since last update
Ease of use
Workforce, is pretty straight forward and relatively easy to use.
Support
Terrible. This is the very reason I am writing this review. Support requests go completely unanswered.
Documentation
Basic.
Value for money
It's great if you are a developer and can fix the issue you will run into. It's a decent product, just not supported properly.
I used this to: Primarily for staff directories.
Functionality
The extension works well overall though, not being able to assign multiple departments to an employee is a serious problem.
Ease of use
Easy to use but limited in features. I would class this as a simple employee extension.
Support
You have to buy support.
Documentation
Limited documentation but works for a limited extension.
Value for money
Pretty good value for money, you pay for what you get.
I used this to: Solicitors website.
Functionality
Very good, a directory with lots of data associated with a person. Tagging doesn't work very well. Does not work well with core Joomla.
Ease of use
Easy to setup, implement and add content. However it does not work well with core Joomla components, the tagging does not work as it should.
Support
Very limited, support posts go unanswered and it does not seem to be as well supported as their other extensions
Documentation
Adequate
Value for money
If you want a simple, easy to use people directory then its great. Don't expect much support or additional modules or plugins.
I used this to: An employee directory.
Easy to install, easy to use, and the support is fast and fantastic.



Thanks for making a great product.

Simple yet great

I have been using this for several years now at Triad Games and it is a valuable tool for any company, project team or other sites that want to show off staff, contributors, or other important members.



Support is great, though I have not had any initial problems, the staff is always willing to help with questions about customizations and improving the product.



► Excellent response time, ► Excellent support, ► Simple and clean product, ► Almost no overhead, ► Very versatile, ► Easy to use, ► Easy to customize!
I cant say enough good things about this extension. Very easy to configure with plenty of options out of the box. The layout looks beautiful and you'll be up and running in minutes. The support is what really amazes me, I have received exceptional treatment and they went the extra mile for me. A++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Thank you!
Sincerely, I would never have managed to get my website working without this extension... The client wanted a directory, with a specific look&feel, just because a contender already had it... Not only Workforce worked well out of the box, but also it proved to be quite easy to personalize (the code is quite accessible), and the support was just perfect, helping me sort out each issue in a few hours. I always prefer open-source solutions, but I'm glad I spent a few bucks on this one.
Works perfectly out the box, support is tops, no doubt one of the best and useful extensions I have used ;) Thanks again
This extension "rocks the house"!!!!!!



Easy to use. Very intuitive!



The support offered is AMAZING, ACCURATE, FRIENDLY & TIMELY!



Very well thought out and well done!



Respectfully,

Leonard Michael

Great product

I had been going nuts with some CCK products, trying to make them work the way I wanted as a biz directory. I've used IProperty by these guys, which is great so I thought I'd give this a try. Easy to install and configure. Was up and running in under 5 minutes and is the ideal solution for my application.
