Acrolinx has started to phase out support for this. But don’t worry! We've replaced it with Targets. If you have Targets enabled, you already have an easier way to manage your guidance. You might also want to visit our Sunset Policy.
You can use Checking Profiles to centrally manage most check settings on behalf of your users. When you use Checking Profiles, your users automatically receive the right settings after they start an Acrolinx Integration. Checking Profiles provide you with a way to group check settings into profiles that cover specific use cases. For example, if you have two user groups who check with different writing guides, you can create a Checking Profile for each user group. After you create the Checking Profiles, you can select the writing guide that each user group should receive by default.
Checking Profiles store all settings that affect checking behavior. These settings include the types of issue to check, the writing guide for checking style and grammar as well as the term sets for checking terminology. You ensure that users get the appropriate settings by assigning Checking Profiles to user groups. You can group users by their Acrolinx roles or by additional information such as department or team. You can also assign Checking Profiles to individual usernames.
The settings in a Checking Profile are broken down into different sections. There are basic settings and settings that affect checking behavior. The settings that affect checking behavior are split into guidance settings and check settings.
These settings include the Checking Profile name and the Locked option. You can lock a profile to prevent users from overriding the settings that you’ve configured for them.
The guidance settings include the key components of your guidance package such as language, writing guide, and term sets. They also include the extraction settings for your document types.
The check settings define the issue types that users check for and any extra options that are associated with specific issue types. These settings are very similar to the settings that users see on the "Check" tab of an Acrolinx Integration.
