I haven't used it for very long but it seems to be doing exactly what it's supposed to do. The concept itself is great if you manage many sites and have clients who also are constantly poking around. I like that it's basically as granular or as general as you want it to be.

I must honestly say that I haven't used the plugin extensively, because strange thing don't happen on sites I manage. 😉 But based on some tests in combination with MainWP, it's doing what it should. When I had some questions about table sizes and optimization, Robert offered great support. He knows what he's talking about and can level with the client.
