You can use Acrolinx for Microsoft 365 SharePoint to check files in Microsoft Teams. This works because MS Teams stores the files in a SharePoint library.
You can add and activate Acrolinx for each library in SharePoint. Doing this activates Acrolinx for all channels except private ones. Private channels have their own SharePoint websites with their own document libraries in SharePoint. That means that you can add and activate Acrolinx separately.
You can manually add the Acrolinx App to each team or private channel (this doesn’t activate Acrolinx for a certain library).
To add Acrolinx, follow these steps:
Navigate to SharePoint. In the Documents tab of a channel or a private channel, click the three dots (...) at the top right, and then click Open in SharePoint.
In your SharePoint site, click on Site contents in the Sidebar.
In the ribbon bar, click New and select App from the dropdown menu.
In the section From Your Organization, find Acrolinx for Microsoft 365 SharePoint and select it to add to your site (team or private channel).
To activate Acrolinx, follow these steps:
Navigate to SharePoint. In the Documents tab of a channel or a private channel, click the three dots (...) at the top right and then click Open in SharePoint.
In the ribbon bar, click Acrolinx and select Configure Acrolinx from the dropdown menu.
Select whether you want to Enable Automated Checks in this Library. This means Acrolinx will automatically check a document each time it’s uploaded or saved after an online edit.
In the field Select a Target, select your preferred Target from the dropdown. If you leave this blank, Acrolinx will use the preferred Target for whoever runs the check.
Acrolinx has started to phase out support for Checking Profiles. But don’t worry! We've replaced them with Targets.
Haven't enabled Targets? You can still select your preferred Checking Profile from the dropdown in the Target field.
In the field Select File Types to Check, select the types of documents you'd like to check.
If you prefer to use regex to configure your file types, click Show advanced settings.
To check Word files, for example, use:
If you want to check all supported Office formats and PDFs, use:
If Acrolinx doesn't support all of the file types in your library, it’s helpful to set a regex filter. Otherwise, Acrolinx might check the unsupported files, but the score will be meaningless. This can weaken your analytics.
Acrolinx automatically checks your team’s shared documents in MS Teams after an upload.
You can see the Acrolinx Score and Status in the Documents section. The color coding is as simple as a traffic light, so you can quickly see how you scored.
For more information on what Acrolinx found, follow the Scorecard link in the Acrolinx Details column.
Happy with the Acrolinx Scores? Take a moment and enjoy content paradise.
If you aren't happy with the results, you can improve your content directly in Teams. Click Save to trigger a new check.
Note that a batch and a single check are only possible in SharePoint, not in Microsoft Teams.
