Setup and Enable Outlook Add-In


Step 1:   Get Add-In & Create a LawToolBox Account

Don’t have a LawToolBox account for your organization yet? Start here. You will be prompted to choose which account type to start with, Basic Sync or Native Sync (if you choose Native sync, your global admin must enable the add-in and login first, before getting started).

Basic Sync: works with every version of Office 365 and allows users to create matters, view reports, calculate deadlines, add/update case specific dates, with basic sync to outlook calendar for each matter

Native Sync: Office 365 Global Admin mailbox must enable before adding for others, works with Small Biz Premium+ & E3,  includes same features described above except instead of basic sync, its fully-integrated native sync with Outlook, Groups, OneNote and Microsoft Teams

Already have a LawToolBox365 account? Follow the steps below to get started!

Step 2:   Enable the LawToolBox365 Add-in to Outlook

Note (1):  LawToolBox365 uses Office 365 single sign-on (SSO) so you won’t need credentials from us

Note (2):  If you choose Native Sync and the first user is not an Office 365 Global Admin, ask your IT department to first add the add-in to the Global Admin Outlook mailbox and sign in to the app by clicking on “Matters” (global admin will click “agree” to grant select users the ability create and manage Groups for LawToolBox matters). Even though users without global admin rights will be able to see the add-in in their Outlook Ribbon they will not be able to log into the add-in until global admin does this (see Quick Tips). Not sure if you are the “Global Admin”?  You are a Global Admin user if when you click on the “waffle menu” in your online office (OWA) and you see a tile for “Admin”.  (Click here for instructions on how to assign Office 365 global admin rights to a user).
