Plugin configuration 93% from 29 tests

readme.txt 94% from 16 tests

The readme.txt file is important because it is parsed by WordPress.org for the public listing of your plugin
Please fix the following attributes:
  • Screenshots: These screenshots have no corresponding images in /assets: #1 (**Amplify** -Feedback widgets, contact us forms etc are seen by your users as one-way conversations. Users after filling up a form are not even sure if they will receive a reply. But with Amplify Connect these feedbacks are turned into conversations and stored in a personalised user-inbox for every user.), #2 (**Pro-active User Engagement**-Less than 0.5% users on any site submits a feedback or fill up a contact form. So instead of waiting for users to contact you, why not greet them with a custom message when then pay you a visit.), #3 (**Easy and yet powerful customer support**-Easily assign these conversations and support requests to team members. Use email forwarding to centralised your support queries via Amplify Connect.), #4 (**additional marketing channel**-An additional marketing channel)
The official readme.txt is a good inspiration
