Planning board PowerPoint

Note: Browsers and computers are trying really hard to protect you from naughty people, so to use this PowerPoint planning board you will need to:

  1. Download the PowerPoint presentation file (Windows users: Right-Click, Mac users Ctrl-Click and choose Save Link As...)
  2. Open the presentation, and if you receive a security warning about 'Macros and ActiveX', please choose to enable the active content (this is NOT normally the recommended option, but the file has been checked).
  3. If you do choose not to enable the active content, the planning board won't work and you will need to download a fresh copy.

Note for techies: If you don't like using .pps files, you can change the extension to .ppt (not pptx) but the board will only work when the presentation is run.
