Outlaw’s Word Add-in allows users to create new documents and manage many aspects without leaving Word. Users can create and save new versions, update existing documents, search their repository, and view document metadata directly.
To use the Word Add-in, users must have an active Outlaw user account.
The Outlaw Word Add-in can be added in Microsoft 365 (for the web) or in the desktop Word application.
To install the add-in in ether format, click the Add-ins button in the ribbon along the top.
In the opened modal, click on the search bar and search “Outlaw.” Find the Outlaw add-in and click Add.
Once the add-in has been added, open it, and you will see it appear on the right-hand side of your screen.
If you are using Google or Microsoft SSO for Outlaw, click the respective option to log in. If you are using a direct login via your email address, enter your credentials and click Log in.
