Manual door release - OK to use? How to avoid?

You can damage the linkage in the doors and subsequent trim (window not dropping in time)using the manual release (Tesla says).

They make stickers that say door open or have the picture of the car with the open door on it to help.

Or just tell them to use the button before the trip is over however annoying that may seem.
