While this list is not comprehensive, it does contain the majority of the proper actions to take when you start to use Pixel Plow. We have loads of information in our Support Portal about how our service works. There are several walk-through videos as well, demonstrating agent functionality. They’re in our Vimeo channel as well as embedded in pages in the Support Portal.
We hope this checklist is helpful as you begin to use Pixel Plow. If you feel there is something substantial that is missing from the list, please let us know.
