A guide to adding the Microsoft Word Add-in to your Word instance

Note: The Word Add-in must be centrally installed by an Office Admin user before a user can access on their individual Microsoft Word instance.
Once your organisation has centrally installed Red Marker and made the Add-In available to your users, each user will need to add the Add-in to their Word instance, so they can apply Red Marker's custom risk detection to their content as they work on it.

To access the Add-in within your instance of Microsoft Word:

Ensure the Microsoft Word desktop app is enabled

Note: If you don't already have this installed, log into Office 365 with your credentials at In the top right of the page when you login, click "Download Office Apps" and follow prompts to download Office.

Once Microsoft Word is installed, open it, and log in with your credentials.

Once logged in, click on Insert and click the "Add-ins" drop down:

Within the drop down on Add-ins, click "My Add-ins", which will open a new Office Add-ins window:

Select "Admin Managed". If no Add-ins are showing as available, click refresh.

Once Add-ins are displayed, select "Red Marker". This will allow the Red Marker Add-in to appear on the ribbon of your home toolbar. If you can't see it immediately, go to the far right of the toolbar and click the dropdown arrow. You should see the Add-in under the heading 'Red Marker'.

Once installed, you are ready to use the Red Marker Word Add-in integration to review your document!

Click the Red Marker Add-in icon to launch the Red Marker tool.
