I have used basix nex forms for over three years now and it does the job even on complex forms with a lot of conditional logic and math fields. + drag and drop layout including styling + multipage forms work fine + sliders work reasonably well on mobile (CF sliders don't work on mobile in multipage forms) ++ customer support is best and absolutely worth the money as you will need it Desirabilities: = direct export on submit to google drive sheets = field slugs keep being renamed when you change label names though slugs should be short as they function as headers in the data report
Paul, was super helpful. He tried many times until he got all the information from me to get the form update. Excellent customer support!!!
First, we have been impressed by the architecture of NEX-Forms. Over two months, we implemented a pretty comprehensive form, using many of the functionalities. We faced a couple of irritating features (bugs?) but learnt with trial and error to get to the final solution. A few days ago, we got convinced, with several repetitions on various machines and browsers in Europe and South America, that conditional logic is not executed correctly. We could repeat the incorrect executions and reported it to the support. It seems if you have around 10+ rules and as many THEN-statements per rule, the algorithm doesn's work properly any more. The support Basix promised a plugin update for last Monday. We implemented the new plugin version 7.2, with the effect, that the display of the form didn't work any more. Inspite of several attempts, including cloning of the original form and using the new id in the WP theme, we didn't succeed. We reported on, that we are tired after two months, having bought the pro version, add-ons, and support. Basix offered us yesterday a refund. Today, we wanted to provide the PayPal account to the offer within But: Codecanyon has deleted most of our fair and honest comments, posting "This comment is currently being reviewed." Dear ladies and gentlemen, we are Swiss and not used to censorship. That's ugly. And by the way: We are not beginners, two of us have a master degree in computer science from Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, same reputation as the MIT.
I ended up purchasing the full version of this plugin. It is extremely powerful and had features that I wasn't even expecting to have which I ended up utilizing (like file upload etc...) I ran into some issues initially which my hosting refused to help me with but the Support took it upon themselves to help me out. I just wanted to say that they went above and beyond what I was expecting. Well done in all regards!
An intuitive form builder with all the fields and features needed to create a functional and stylish form.
