How do I enable macros for templates provided by Event 1 Software?


Some Excel templates that are provided with your Event 1 Software product contain Excel macros that are used to automate certain tasks.  The default macro security settings in Excel may prevent these macros from being used or may require you to click a button to enable them upon opening.

The Excel macros contained in these Excel templates are digitally signed by Event 1 Software.  The digital signature ensures the authenticity of the macros and that they have not been modified to work in a way not originally intended.

You can allow macros in these templates to be enabled automatically by adding Event 1 Software as a trusted publisher.  You only need to do this one time on each workstation.
