Great Job

I think that you do a great job with this plug in, is very simple and work fine.

I only have one problem with Flamingo:
When I export forms, for default this plug in use a comma (,) as delimiter character, when the CSV have a message field where the user write with commas I have problems when I try to convert the CSV in Excel Tables, because Excel recognize commas as delimiters characters.

Except for this issue the plug in is very usefull and I want congratulate you for this plug-in.

Grat Job.

Really useful plugin

Just wanted to say what a great plugin that worked straight away for me and my sites.

If you use contact form this is a great help.

On top of that the developer provides people with really succinct and timely responses to support requests.

Perfect addition to contact form 7

Made adjustments in my contact forms in just a few minutes and Flamingo does exactly what it is meant for. Just a few lines in the additional settings and everything is displayed correctly. Big fan of this.

Simple, Easy, Working!

A must-have plugin for Contact Form 7.
I hope the author could allow users to customize which CF7 tags to be displayed on “Inbound Messages” pages as well as to be exported in the future, just a suggestions.
