How can I unlock the sheets? What is the password?

  • Help

Our templates are prepared to be used out-of-box and can be used without unlocking. We password protect some sections in our templates in order to prevent accidental changes users can make, like overwriting a formula or deleting a calculation column etc.  So, normally you wouldn’t need to unlock the template.

Of course, if you want to make modifications to the template you are free to unlock it with the password.

  • For Premium Templates: You will find the password in the email you received after purchase.
  • For Free templates: You need to buy the modifiable version on our Etsy shop. This gives you the password and modification rights.

** Please note that, our support for unlocked and modified templates will be quite limited and this may need custom consulting.


Ok, I have the password. Now, how can I unlock the sheet?

Go to Review Tab in the top menu of Excel > Click Unprotect Sheet -> Enter the password
