The plugin will add a button to the Visual Editor – just highlight the text you want tweetable, and click the twitter icon in the editor’s toolbar. You will be shown some customization options, and once you hit ‘OK’ a shortcode will be wrapped around the selected content. You will need to view or preview the post to see the styles applied.

You can select any form and data gets populated itself. We have made sure that you see the data in a perfect tabular format. Unlike CFDB, the plugin itself is very smart and creates column name from your Contact Form 7 Field names. Hence, all the entries can be scanned at a single glance.
