Welcome to the Core Platform!
The Core Platform is the heart of Acrolinx. It’s the central part of the Acrolinx package that helps you produce great content that's aligned with your goals and brand.
It includes a Dashboard that opens in your Browser, and a Sidebar for your writers to use wherever they create content.
The Dashboard is where you manage the whole Acrolinx process, from users to Terminology. What’s more, it also equips you with a powerful analysis tool: Acrolinx Analytics.
The Acrolinx Sidebar works in combination with an Acrolinx Integration to let you check content wherever you create it. When a writer has an Acrolinx Integration installed, they’re asked to sign in to Acrolinx and will get the Sidebar in return. The Sidebar gives writers a user-friendly interface to check content and act on guidance.
In this part of our documentation, you can learn all about the options the Dashboard has to offer, and how checking with the Sidebar works. Don’t forget, our customer support is always here to help if you’re having any unexpected issues.
