Still need help?

We do our best to respond to all requests made through this site. However, as this is a free-to-use service, we may not always have the resources to respond to help requests immediately. If you are having trouble with The 5 Minute Lesson Plan, please use our contact form to submit a support request and we will endeavour to respond to those we can help. We will continue to prioritise support requests from our paying subscribers before free users, while also continuing to develop The 5 Minute Lesson Plan tool within Perspective.

If you would like to request a new feature to The 5 Minute Lesson Plan, please check our Coming Soon Page first for our list of upcoming additions. If your suggestion isn't listed there, by all means let us know!
