What site doesn’t need easy, flexible forms?
Freeform allows you to create simple or complex forms on your ExpressionEngine website. Create simple contact forms or collect more useful information from your visitors with more complex forms. And with Freeform Pro you can use an intuitive and enjoyable drag and drop interface to create forms. With pro you can create multi-page forms, and forms where submissions can be edited by the submitter.
Field type driven, Freeform and Freeform Pro give you the strength and flexibility to adapt to your client’s needs as they change over time.
Freeform Pro 5.1.1 only works on ExpressionEngine 3.3+, but includes a copy of Freeform Pro 4.2.5, which is compatible with ExpressionEngine 2.11.x. If you're still using ExpressionEngine 2.x, you can use the EE2 compatible version until you're ready to upgrade your site to ExpressionEngine 3.x.

The latest version of Freeform Pro is 5.1.1. The chart below shows the current technical requirements and compatibility for the latest version of Freeform Pro.
Freeform Pro currently only supports the latest version of ExpressionEngine plus 1 point version back. The red, vertical dashed line represents the cut-off for EE versions we support. EE versions to the right of that line are no longer supported by us with our add-ons. The icon represents an update specifically for compatibility with that EE version. Please upgrade to this add-on version before upgrading to that version of ExpressionEngine.
Date formats below are: M/D/YYYY. As always, we recommend that you always use the latest versions of our add-ons. However, this chart may answer some of your questions about upgrading the Solspace Freeform Pro add-on and ExpressionEngine, and reduce the risk of incompatibility. This chart also serves as a guide to see when support for the latest version of ExpressionEngine becomes available.

We evaluated several web form solutions for ExpressionEngine and quickly identified Freeform as the best solution for our needs. With Freeform, we were able to get our client’s sites to market quickly and easily train new users on the platform as they grow.
We have been able to give clients the ability to make the forms they need with little involvement from us!
Must have addon for those looking for any type of form solution!
Pretty much everyone who develops sites using ExpressionEngine is going to use Freeform at some point. I used Freeform Pro on a relatively large website to give the administrators some freedom over their forms by using the Composer functionality.
@solspace - using Freeform for the first time in a while. Nice polish on the UI - not afraid to put the client in front of this now.
Freeform 4 is bloody good, it has to be said. Haven’t used the Pro version but feel I may need to.
@solspace new freeform module is really neat. Made my life a lot easier on a new project I just completed
@solspace Damn, this new freeform 4 is pretty!
If you're upgrading from Freeform 4.x on ExpressionEngine 2.x, it's recommended that you upload the new Freeform files to your new ExpressionEngine 3.x site directory just before running the EE2 -> EE3 upgrade. Proceed with the following instructions...
