I must say I took a risk and bought this app after reading some great reviews about it. Please take noticed the reviews were a couple of years old when the app was in support. I payed with credit card had no issues getting a license key. For and app that is not in support is the best 30 bucks I have ever spent. I made 3x my money creating a form for a client and using this to process my form and create my php sent email file. App has not crashed or have I found any bugs. This app would be great for another company to buy and built on top of. I love that I can design my own forms and use this to process the back end of my forms.

@Mammut: I'm curious to find out if you have received your s/n and support emails from Bebosoft since I was planning to purchase Forms To Go 4.5.4 as well. Support is important to me since you "marry" your forms builder. Kind regards and thank you for your input, Michael

@Michael: I got a refund through PayPal. I think Bebosoft has closed down...

This is a fantastic little tool for webmasters. $30 is a drop in the bucket compared to the time and effort this will save you if you need to create custom web forms with any given frequency. For me, this little app has already paid for itself with its first use.

Just to make clear - it does not actually create the html form itself. You need to be html savvy enough to write the form it will use a the front end. What this program does is take your form and deal with all the behind scenes dirty work in a very fast and efficient way.

I have one particular client that stages various events and each event needs a custom registration form that suits the requirements of particular event. In the past it would have taken me roughly an hour to get a moderately complex custom web form set up for them with proper validation, recaptcha, mysql data dump, etc. Now I just create my form layout in Coda or TextMate exactly to the client's specifications, run it through Forms to Go, and I have a fully validated form complete with a data dump and way for my non-technical clients to view the data online in less than 20 minutes.

I only have two gripes and they tend to be relatively minor (at least to me):

Perhaps a more friendly one-window wizard type interface similar to ForeverSave would be better than the piecemeal menu driven setup which tends to be a bit clunky at first. Honestly, however, once you run through it once this becomes a very minor grievance.

Second - Clicking "User's Guide" in the help menu does not take you anywhere. The Quick Start guide does work properly, but does not provide near enough detail for a geek like me. I did hunt down the help pages online, but somewhat ironically, the topics I actually wanted to research (How it works, Validation options) did not display due to php errors. For anyone who is savvy enough to be building web forms this may not be a big deal. It certainly did not impede my ability to use the software and get value out of it. I just like for my help documentation to actually be there if/when I need it.


Those minor issues aside, this is a very good utility that will save you lots of time and trouble if you ever have to deal with a custom web form!

It's a great application. Too bad you have to pay $15 every year to upgrade. Guess I'll stick with my old version.

Does 4.2.3 fix the phantom attachments problem?

------------------------
"I'm having an odd problem. Every email that I received displays the paperclip icon, whether or not there is actually an attachment. If there is actually an attachment, it comes through fine. If there isn't actually an attachment, the paperclip icon simply disappears upon selecting the message. How can I fix it so that the only emails that display the paperclip icon are the emails that actually do have an attachment?"

Version 4.2.3 fixes a problem when processing HTML forms which contained spaces or other invalid characters in the field names. Version 4.2.4 fixed a problem introduced in 4.2.3 that could not process HTML forms which contained extended characters.

Regarding the phantom file attach, please leave a message in our tech support help desk to make sure that bug is reported with the detailed information so it can be fixed.

Thanks

Forms To Go has to be the best software I've ever purchased. It makes creating email forms super easy. No need to learn coding with this app. Open your HTML form, a few clicks and you're ready to go. And now it's even got CAPTCHA!

I've been using Forms 2 Go for a few months now, and this is an extremely staightforward, easy to use robust little program that quickly and concisely creates PHP, Perl, and ASP scripts, including Data dumping into Databases. I was a total PHP MySQL idiot, but this program has helped me grasp the language through handy notes in the script.
Any problem encountered, which was always to result of my PHP/MySQL ignorance, was quickly and easily solved by the online forum and customer support.

In fact, I was pushing the limits of the application, and looking to do something that it could not, and the Customer Support service took my question head on, 1 to 1, and created the script I needed, all while gracefully putting up with my ignorant questioning! They may have had some Customer Support issues in the past, but these have been fully resolved. Responses on Forums were very quick and extremely helpful.
Outstanding service, outstanding program.
I would fully recommend to any business, Newbie, Oldie, Seasoned....Everybody. Thanks Forms to Go!

Their Support service is 2nd to none, including Disney.

Your client told you he needs a form to process info on the website and you don't know programming, this little app will work as a brain for you, doing the job of programming on PHP (ASP or Perl), saving you time on your work and resolving those issue about forms. It is so great.

I have spent countless days trying to get all kinds of formmail.cgi .pl scripts to work and never with any success. I went through hundreds of pages of advise on the web... I downloaded this application, made a quick form, ran the program, uploaded my files, tested the form and got an email withthe form data... on the first try! Thank you Bebosoft.
