I stumbled upon this add-on by accident, and it filled a need I had perfectly (esp. after I just told the client we couldn’t do this).  This add-on has a LOT of power and I wouldn’t hesitate to use again.  And the fantastic support from Dion is the icing on the cake!

This add-on got us out of a jam with a demanding client that wanted something EE just doesn’t do natively.  The add-on is fantastic - but the real star is the person behind it, Dion.  He offers amazing support and was exceedingly helpful.  Highly recommended due to both the software & the developer.

Great add-on for relating entries on the fly.  Also, the support is amazing.  Dion was able to point me in the right direction to answer all my questions..
