  3. How will I place a new or renewal order post-Symantec acquisition?
    Response: eStore is widely available for renewal order placement however renewals are being reviewed at the Core and Digital account level for accuracy so this may delay eStore visibility until this review has been completed.

  7. Will the renewal opportunities be uploaded just like in Symorder or will we need to use the Google form to create every single order?

    Response: All renewals will be loaded into eStore based on expiration data and prioritized by segment.
