The plugin works great, but when you get the forms in your email – they look like this: Emailed customer support but no reply. Bummer. Please fix this problem and my review will go to 5 stars!

Doesn’t seem to work as described, unless I’m missing some options somewhere? Insert in to form, but no way to “Set” the hours for a business, but just inserts in to a form like a normal form field. Waste of time.
