This seems like a great plugin that could save me some time. I am extremely disappointed that you're requiring All Access to use it though. I don't need Advance Email Analytics or Mozify, the Basics plan covers all my needs. Why not extend this feature to all your paid users?

This is awesome guys. Any plans to create an Atom package that can do this by any chance? wink

I am having trouble downloading the plugin...I have DW CC / OS=Sierra. It is listed in Adobe Exchange as downloaded, but never shows up in DW. Any ideas?

@cwhissen

Currently I think we are planning to keep them all access only, but I'll add your suggestion to the list and see if we can get this rolled out to non-AA customers.

@Luke Nokes

Glad you like it Luke! I'll check with the team to see if Atom is on our roadmap, but keep your eyes peeled for a few other announcements we have coming up!
