Acrolinx for Mac - Outlook

Read more about what you can check in Acrolinx for Outlook on Mac.

What You Can Check

Acrolinx checks locally saved e-mails, but it won't check emails you've saved to the network. To run a check, you can either create a new e-mail and save it, or open a draft you saved previously. Acrolinx checks the content of the text field, but doesn't check the e-mail address fields (to, cc, and bcc) and the subject line.

Your Sidebar in Mac Outlook 

Acrolinx for Outlook works a little differently than other Acrolinx Integrations. In Outlook, you get a lighter version of the Sidebar. The cards give you all the information you need to correct your content. But Acrolinx doesn't highlight issues in the text and doesn't replace issues for you. You can edit each issue directly in the text. All other Sidebar features work as you're used to.

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.
