Question about quickshifter

I have the MV quickshifter and hear different stories about if you can downshift using the quickshifter without using your clutch handle. I guess the quickshifter can only used to shift up, not down. Correct?

It should be used only for upshifts and works the best when the bike is under acceleration. This is true for almost every quickshifter in the market.

Currently - '13 Ducati Multistrada (for sale), '09 Daytona (track only)
Previously - '13 F800GS, '13 MV F3, '10 S1000RR, '04 Royal Enfield 500, '97 Yamaha RX135, '90 Yamaha RD350...and many more.

Nice to have a definite answer! There are a lot of different opinions about how to use a quickshifter, which confuses me since this is my first bike with a quickshifter. All my former bikes (around 16) did not have one. Now that i have one, i will never want a bike without one anymore. So much fun!

The problem is that it is possible to change gears up and down without using the clutch even without quickshifter. That isnt the best for the gearbox for sure.
but as said the quickshifter works only on upshifting
