    Thanks you for this guide. It’s easy to follow and works great.

    But what I fail to understand from this article, or from the feature itself I guess, is to learn what the feature’s actual use is, and what the benefits are, in comparison to the cons, that surely also exist.

    Otherwise great article, great job.
    Grtz
