Acrolinx for Google Sheets

Before you check with Acrolinx, make sure you read the specific information on Acrolinx for Google Sheets.

What You Can Check

If you're working with a shared document, you need to have the access type Can edit. Acrolinx doesn't work when you have one of the access types  Can comment or Can view. 

Acrolinx for Google Sheets checks the content you’ve selected. This could be the entire sheet, single or merged cells, or comments and tables. Acrolinx also checks URLs in your content if your server administrator has turned on link checking.

Check Your Content

  1. To check your content, click the CHECK button at the top of the Results tab. Unless your content is flawless, you'll probably see issues show up in the Results tab. Content issues are represented as colored "cards" that you can interact with. We cover how to work with issues more in-depth in the article The Sidebar Card Guide.

    You can filter the list of issue types so that you can focus on a certain issue type such as spelling.

  2. Acrolinx gives you a Scorecard that scores your content based on the types of issues that you're checking for. You also get an overall Acrolinx Score. To see your Scorecard, click on your Acrolinx Score at the top right of the Sidebar or click Scorecard in the slide-out menu.
