Admin Instructions for Allowing AP for Word

Annotate PRO users who access Microsoft Word through a school or organization account may discover that they are blocked from installing the AP Word Add-in.

Add-ins like AP are highly secure. Microsoft reviews each and every one before allowing them to appear in the Office Store.

You may need to simply request that your organizational admins — the person or team that manages Microsoft solutions — allow add-ins or, specifically, Annotate PRO.

In our experience admins are happy to accommodate. The admin tools Microsoft provides are quite powerful; admins can create groups of users to test specific add-ins or just allow a single user to install. When your institution licenses AP for all faculty an admin policy can automatically add the add-in for every user.

We always appreciate feedback on AP – from direct users and also IT and legal. We are used to providing additional details on privacy and data management and regularly enter into data processing agreements, with our clients in Europe and elsewhere, to assure all standards are met or exceeded.
