If you are a Microsoft Windows user and cannot access Microsoft App Source or don't have permissions to Microsoft Word Add-ins, please follow these instructions:

  1. Request the referenced XML manifest file below from our Support team.

  2. Put the file into a new "add-in" folder on your desktop.

  3. Navigate to inside the folder, right click in the whitespace next to the manifest file, then click Properties.

  4. Navigate to the Sharing tab and select/copy the Network Path.

  5. Open Microsoft Word, navigate to File → Options → Trust Center → Trust Center Settings.

  6. Select Trusted Add-in Catalogs.

  7. Paste the network path that you copied from before into the Catalog Url input box and click Add catalog.

  8. You'll get a new line item for the add-in, make sure to click the "Show in menu" checkbox.

  9. Click Ok on all the popups until they all close.

  10. Restart Word.

  11. Navigate to the Insert tab → My add-ins → SHARED FOLDER, select the MyCase add-in, then click Add.

  12. The add-in should get added to the Home tab and should stay there when you close/open Word again
