My latest project requires a complex CF7 registration form, the data of which must be editable by subadmins. I’m not sure any of the other db plugins provide this, at least for free. It’s what caused me to install this one, and it works splendidly. It also provides for editing, hiding and rearranging labels for a much improved admin UX. One thing this lets you do is replace underscores in CF7 tags with spaces. Adding these features was a very nice touch! I had a special request that the plugin not store empty/null fields (repetitive groups when not all are used) and the devs provided this fix, plus a bonus of clickable URLs for attached/uploaded signature files that open in a new browser tab. These updates were provided within a couple of days after the request. Outstanding support!

I don’t mind that the free version only displays data from a single form. What I do mind though is the fact that it is not translation ready. Such a basic feature and they just ‘forget’ to add the support for it. EDIT: coder added the code needed to translate the plugin to other languages.
