Where's my Sidebar?
Acrolinx is available as soon as you open a document, but you'll need to show the Sidebar before you can start checking.
- To show the Sidebar, select Add-ons in the Google Docs or Sheets menu.
- Select Acrolinx > Show Sidebar.
Sign in to Acrolinx
When you open the Sidebar for the first time, you'll land on a start page where Acrolinx asks you for connection details. The Acrolinx Core Platform does the heavy lifting when it comes to analyzing your content, so you'll need to connect to one before you start checking. Your Acrolinx administrator should’ve given you your Acrolinx URL and sign-in details.
- Enter your Acrolinx URL and click CONNECT.
- Click SIGN IN to open the Acrolinx sign-in page. A browser window opens where you can enter your sign-in details and confirm the request to access your account.
And you're in! Hello Sidebar!
