I like buddyforms very much. It is the best form-builder I have ever seen. Support is perfectly and fast.

There are very few plugins that can do what this does, let users submit information for the front end but also can keep it private. Very easy to use! I found some limitations but notified support who quickly fixed them. My only constructive feedback is for support to respond more quickly, that’s what will turn a free user into a paid one (in my case eventually I was able to communicate more directly with support through slack and believe they will be more responsive for others)
