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.

As a user, to add the Add-In to your Microsoft Word:

  • Make sure you have the Microsoft Word desktop app. If you don't already have this installed, log into Office 365 with your credentials at https://www.office.com. In the top right of the page when you login, you should see a button "Download Office Apps". Click on that and download Office.

  • Once MS Word is installed, open it, and log in with your credentials

  • Once logged in, navigate to Insert > Add-ins, then click on My Add-ins:

  • This will open a new Office Add-ins window, where you can navigate to 'Admin Managed'. Here, click 'Refresh' and then select 'Red Marker'. This will add the Red Marker Add-in to 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'.

  • Click the Add-in icon to start it. You will see a task pane open on the right hand side of the page. Click 'check content', login with your Red Marker credentials, and start reviewing!
