A number of commentators have objected to importantly as a sentence modifier (the use defined above at sense 1) and have recommended important instead. Actually, both the adverb and the adjective are in reputable standard use in this function. Important is always used with more or most.
Importantly is commonly used in similar contexts, but it is somewhat more flexible in not requiring more or most.
