    Great Plugin
    Is there anyway to add multiple welcome message.   Say I have the initial welcome message but I need to option to send welcome message from a different user group.
    Can I do something like that

    Plugin works great and does everything one could hope for in a simple easy to use package. I had a bit of trouble finding a list of the placeholders at first, however they're found in the 'Quick Tags' button under the Forms section. A tad annoying as I ended up having to take a screenshot for the first little while so I could make reference to it while editing, but the list is there which is great.
    I do wish that there was a bit more functionality for the output of a message where one could specify a format without having to specify each and every X for {field_name_X} and {field_value_X}. Having the values able to be specifically pulled is fantastic, but having a general format one could have that would apply to every question within that form would be much more utilitarian.
    I also notice that when using a selection box to eliminate some questions (e.g. a staff application wherein you select a specific team and it populates the questions based on that), the {field_list} will still output the 'hidden' questions, which doesn't look good in a final format.

    Lastly I wish there was a way to enforce a certain tag depending on a selection box much like how field hiding works with that.
    All in all if you need a form, this is a great solution, though for very specific niche uses of the features presented, it can be a bit clunky.

    Thanks for the plugin. This has reduced the spam by around 50% but a lot still gets through unfortunately. It would be great if there could be an option to make users  complete a harder version of recaptcha, e.g. mini puzzle.

    This is a great, missing feature, and reviewing the changes between 4.4 and 4.5, it seems IPS agreed. This is now core, out of the box functionality, so this plugin is no longer required for 4.5, however for those running 4.3 or 4.4, this is a must. Almost completely eliminated automated spam coming in as support requests.

    perfect solution. If you could post a video in several categories, that would be great

    The reason that this isn't done by default in a vanilla IPS installation escapes me to the point where I am absolutely astounded. Thank you for what should have been a vanilla feature, Mike. 
    I too am getting quite sick of all the spam coming in through the contact form, and I'm willing to bet that this will curb it.

    Ever used a Google Form for something related to your IPS community?
    Stop here, download this great app and forget about Google Forms forever!
    Forms by Devfuse/Mike John is a very useful, powerful and flexible app to integrate all kind of forms in your suite. The app is totally integrated and works smoothly with your member management, staff management, site look-and-feel, and more. It will allow you to do many things you will never be able to do with external solutions, in place, all in a single app.  
    One month after purchase we already have 6 forms on the way, and counting. We are becoming addicts. Our community is a voluntary association with activities IRL & online. We use forms for registration of paid membership, registration to IRL events, joint purchases, template for classified ads... Our staff has a relatively high turn-over ; permissions through groups ensure everyone has the means to work any time and also protect and preserve data, without painful external links and passwords sharing and changing.
    Definite ++ :
    All sorts of actions can be automatically triggered when a form is sent: private message, email, topic creation in a forum, with customizable sender and receivers. Created content include dynamically the form fields content, in whatever formatting you would like. All actions work perfectly as described. A lot of form-by-form customizable possibilities (permissions, actions...) All types of form fields you could dream of, including uploads and rich text editor, with perfectly working toggle on/toggle off possibilities between fields (including perfect management of the "mandatory but toggled off" fields.) Definitely increases engagement of your users, who will feel being taken care of more personnally Reliable and trustworthy developer with longstanding history in IPS Marketplace, open to new feature suggestions, regular updates, good support. By the way, a lot of comments in old reviews here have been addressed inbetween. Robust, with very few (minor) bugs. Things you should be aware of before purchasing :
    Only users with admin privileges can create a form (from the ACP.) So, this part cannot be delegated to other members of your staff, except if you grant them admin permissions. However, all the rest (log management, follow-up of the requests...) can be! CSV export of form logs is perfectible. For now, the columns of the exported .csv file are all the fields of all the forms, which can become quite large and unpractical. If your data management relies heavily on a csv file or processing an excel-type sheet, you might be disappointed. However, with all the possibles actions and the online logs, it is likely that you won't even need them. For the moment, email automatic confirmation is sent by the creator's (admin) email address, with no possibility of customization. Beware if you don't want your email address to be disclosed. Due to its power and flexibility, the app has a relatively steep learning curve in the very beginning if you are not an experienced user, or familiar with other apps from Mike John. Documentation is somewhat limited and phrasing is not totally self-explaining sometimes. You might need a number of trials and errors before achieving your exact goal (you will in the end, and then, you'll create forms at speed light.) Overall: a must-have, totally worth the price!

    Michael.J reacted to Joey_M in Hide Product Categories   
    Wonderfully simple!
    Use this application to hide product categories,
    Do you have product pages listed but without any items for sale? this is the solution. I often sell out of items that my site sells, this means I can simply hide the categories whilst I re-stock. It also helps me hide them for new areas which haven't yet been populated. Awesome plugin!
    I'd love to see another plugin the future tackle hidden products!
    Thank you for this useful release @Mike John.

    Michael.J reacted to Joey_M in Members Teams   
    Brilliant plugin and with support, this could become a very powerful app.
    I use this on my site and it's a way to promote who my members supports, as it goes it will be a massive part of the sites features. The plugin creates a nice able which can be used to show the most fans, along with their icon in the postbit area and several other locations.
    This could be used on fan sites, example: Your favourite show, character and much more.
    It works perfectly well and credit to Michael for making it a possibility.

    We use Forms as a way to have new members introduce themselves on our site. They fill in a simple form explaining how they found us and why, and telling a bit about ourselves. That gets posted to a "new members intro" forum in a nice format, and triggers an email and a few other things. We drive new users to the correct Form through a custom plug-in we've written that takes control after initial user sign-up.

    We're really happy with Forms. It's well worth the yearly renewal fee.

    The actual plugin works great. At first I thought the Status Bar wasn't working, I didn't realize I had to enter the donated amount manually to get the status to show on the front end.

    Thanks for making this available for free.
