Add-on reinstall problem
The last and worst situation is token loss while Add-on update. This is very rare but not impossible.
If while Add-on update BigGantt server is restarted, then for the security reasons we prevent access to add-on until contact with our email@example.com.
Add-on availability is restored manually.
