Basically works but needs tweak with actual CF7 version
By , for WP 4.2.2

Firstly: thanks for programming this plugin.

I'm using it on a page with events where we needed a form per event for registration.
Each of the events comes from event organiser (WP plugin) in an overview and each of them has it's own registration form (on one page, so: yes that's possible).

With the dynamic text extension we achieved to generated only 1 CF7-form which is attached in the theme through do_shortcode() several times on the same page with dynamic content.
It reads the date and title of the event dynamically and sends it through the form.

Works like a charme, BUT...
Firstly it didn't work really: in the most actual CF7 version, all fields are managed through a popup and the popup was blank when we clicked on the dynamic text field buttons.

Researching brought us to a simple tweak.
So simple the tweak so un-understandable is the fact, that the plugin author can't manage to update the plugin.
Normally the plugin would get 5 stars, but because of this, it gets only 3 from us.

Everybody interested in the tweak to get the plugin working with most actual CF7-version:
- Open the plugin file (wp-contents/plugins/contact-form-7-dynamic-text-extension/contact-form-7-dynamic-text-extension.php) in a text editor
- delete every occurence of 'class="hidden"' (should be 2 times)
- replace the original file with the edited one
- done!

The feature to directly render a custom field created via acf is top notch.

Awesome! Plugin makes it easy to add dynamic text and hidden fields to the contact form, even allowing options to populate it with PHP's GET and POST variables.
