Report an Issue or Feature Request
Something new we are doing is also adding the plugin to GitHub. If you have found an issue or would like a feature request with any of the integrations please open an issue within the plugin GitHub repository.
Even though vRO 8.x is out, its great to see an update for many of our customers who still run 7.x. Its also great to see the consolidation of workflows into a single package and increasing support for more workflows without forcing the need for an upgrade.
