Symphytum Reviews

Great at what it does, but doesn't do much

about Symphytum · ·

This is great software for simplifying creating and entering data. With a pleasant and surprisingly flexible form creator for 'catalogs' this is a most impressive feature.

This is where most of its usefulness ends.

No way of producing calculated fields, no way of producing additional reporting formats (not even having a simple table format report is a distinct problem)

Even the most basic database user would require more functionality than this software delivers at the moment.

I look forward to the day when there is more functionality (reporting, calculated fields, etc) as this software has the potential of becoming an amazing and useful non-geek database application for Windows, MAC and Linux based systems with more development.

Great App, with Good Potential

about Symphytum · ·

This is a great app. The only issue I have with it, is that there is no help file / support.

I wanted to integrate it into an appraisal process and I couldn't get any information about relational capabilities, so I had to drop it in the end, which was a pity.
