Guidance

When you first start working with Acrolinx, you'll receive a guidance package from our linguists. Your guidance package contains customized writing guidance according to the requirements of your organization, including your company-specific style guidelines and terminology. After we have set up your guidance, you can still change how it works. You can make many changes to your guidance package in the Acrolinx Dashboard. You can also change advanced settings in configuration files.

Guidance Management in the Dashboard

You can use the Guidance Settings section in the Dashboard to configure the most important components of your writing guidance. You can learn about the following tasks in this section:
