Instructions for re-branding this product
This Tick Boxer Microsoft Word template has document protection applied to make it easy for users to tab through fields quickly and use handy check-boxes. To remove the document protection so you can apply your company branding:

1. Go to the Tools menu in Word
2. Select Unprotect Document.
There is no password to do this – the protection will simply be removed. You can now update your branding and make changes if you’d like to.

If you would like to re-activate protection after you have made your changes (so you can use the check-boxes and tabbing functions again):

1. Go back to the Tools menu
2. Select Protect Document.
You will be prompted to nominate a password, or just click OK if you don’t want to use one.

Happy briefing!
