Your guidance package is one of the most important components of Acrolinx. Our linguists have customized the writing guidance according to the requirements of your organization. They contain your company-specific style guidelines and terminology as well as any reuse repositories that you might have set up. After we have set up your guidance, you can still change how it works. You can make many changes to your guidance package in the Acrolinx Dashboard. You can also change advanced settings in configuration files.
To administer your guidance package, make sure that you're able to do the following tasks:
- Edit and save files in the Acrolinx Server installation directory.
- Log in as an administrator to the Acrolinx Server Dashboard .
- Understand the basics of server administration .
- Edit and understand basic HTML and XML markup.
Guidance Management in the Dashboard
You can use the Guidance Settings section in the Dashboard configure the most important components of your writing guidance. You can perform the following tasks in this section:
- Guidance Wizard - Use this wizard to help you fine-tune your writing guidance.
- Guidelines - Configure context-sensitive guidelines.
- Content Profiles - Create or upload profiles that define how your content is read by Acrolinx.
- Tone of Voice - Set audience types, disable or rename voice characteristics, and edit your word lists.
- Term Sets - Configure new term sets and set them live, or edit, enable and disable existing term sets.
- Reuse Repositories - Assign reuse repositories to writing guides and deploy reuse repositories for checking.
- Checking Profiles - Create checking profiles and assign check settings to different user groups.
A language configuration is a group of settings that influences checking in a particular language. You can update these components in the language configuration file and the Dashboard. Language configurations include settings for components of your writing guidance such as terminology, style and grammar checking, and reuse.
When you make changes to any of these components, you must reload the relevant language configurations so that your changes are available for checking. If you have allocated several language servers to one language, you must reload the language configuration on each language server.
