How did it all start, and what are your achievements to this day?

Our journey began in 2016 when we were working with CF7 and identified a significant challenge. CF7 did not store data in the database, making it difficult to track and manage form submissions beyond email. This sparked the idea of creating an addon that would seamlessly save form records to Google Sheets, providing a centralized and easily accessible database for users.

We initially developed a simple free version of the addon, which gained traction as more people started using it. Within a few months, the positive feedback and increasing downloads indicated a growing user base, reaching an impressive milestone of 10,000 users.

As the user base expanded, we actively listened to their feedback and requests for additional features. Users expressed a desire for automation, such as
  • Avoiding Creating Sheet Manually,
  • Avoiding Managing fields Manually,
  • Arranging Columns Settings using drag and drop,
  • File URL into the Sheet,
  • Entry Leads Sorting (Get Latest Submitted Data at TOP),
  • Freeze Header Settings,
  • Color Row Settings,
  • Merging two columns into one,
  • Sync unsaved data which leads to creating your own database functionality,
  • Saving 3rd Party plugin fields data to the sheet
Responding to these demands, we continuously evolved our plugin to meet their requirements.

In 2018, based on user feedback and growing demands, we launched the PRO version of our plugin. This allowed us to provide even more comprehensive features and support for various contact form plugins.

Continuing our commitment to innovation, we have expanded our functionality to include the ability to save uploaded files directly to Google Drive, providing users with a seamless and integrated solution for managing their form submissions and associated files.

To date, we take pride in the achievements we have made. From the initial concept to the widespread adoption of our free version, and the subsequent release of the PRO version with advanced features, we have established ourselves as a trusted solution in the industry.

Our journey has been driven by user requirements and feedback, and we remain dedicated to providing high-quality solutions that simplify data management and enhance productivity for our users.
