Acrolinx for Sheets - Version 1.4.1 (12 June 2018)
This is a minor service release but it fixes a big issue.
Add-on Stopped Working
With Acrolinx for Sheets - Version 1.4, we’ve changed the scopes that Acrolinx uses to match with Google's security policy for add-ons. Turns out the Sidebar needs a scope that wasn't on our radar.
If you tried to show the Sidebar, the message below appeared:
We've added the forgotten, required scope and published a new version of the Docs and Sheets add-ons. So, you shouldn't see that message anymore, the Sidebar should appear instead.
Acrolinx for Sheets - Version 1.4 (7 February 2018)
We're improved Acrolinx for Google Sheets to match with the Google requirements.
Reduced the Scopes Used by Acrolinx to Comply with Stricter Google Requirements
Acrolinx Add-ons used to request access to many different API scopes, even though they weren't all necessary for Acrolinx to work. We improved this to match with the Google requirements. Now, Acrolinx only asks you to approve access to the API scopes it needs to read the content that you want to check.
- Acrolinx Server 5.1 or later
Acrolinx for Google Sheets - Version 1.3.1 (03 May 2017)
In this release, we've improved the user experience of the Sidebar. We're excited that Acrolinx now checks links.
The Cell Address Is Now Displayed in the Sidebar Card
Now, you can see the cell address on each Sidebar card. So, you can easily locate the issue text in your document.
Acrolinx Now Checks Links
Previously, Acrolinx wasn't able to check links in your Google documents. Now, Acrolinx checks the validity of URLs from your content if your server administrator has turned on link checking. Acrolinx reads the URLs that are visible in your documents and also the linked URLs behind a text. For more information on the link checker, see the article Configuring How Acrolinx Checks for Broken Links .
Context Segmentation Definition (CSD)
We've improved the CSD for Google Sheets. Update your guidance package or ask the Acrolinx Support to send you a new one.
The Acrolinx Sidebar Now Appears in Your Preferred Language
The interface language of the Sidebar appears in either English, German, French, Swedish, or Japanese depending on your Google account language preferences.
Updated Add-Ons for More Consistency
Enterprise Federated Authentication (Requires 5.2 Server)
The add-ons now work with Enterprise Federated Authentication. If the Acrolinx administrator turns on external authentication with PingFederate, writers can sign in to Acrolinx using their user account from your company's user directory.
Acrolinx Shows Correct Path of Document in Scorecard and Analytics Dashboards (Requires 5.2 Server)
Previously, if you checked a Google Sheet, Acrolinx displayed a combination of the document path and name in the Scorecard. As a result, if you clicked on the file name in an Analytics report, the original document failed to open. Now, the file name includes only the path to the original document. So, you can click that link and open it in a browser. This fix will only work if you use the new Google Add-ons together with a version 5.2 server.
Acrolinx for Google Sheets - Version 1.1 (25 May 2016)
In this release, we've improved the user experience of the sidebar so that it looks the same no matter what plug-in you're using. Plus we've updated the design so that it matches our new branding.
We've improved how you filter the issue cards
You can now select all or deselect all when filtering for specific issue types.
We've made it easier to fix repeat occurrences of the same issue
You now select "Replace all occurrences" to fix all the occurrences with one click.
We've made it easier to enter custom information
Sometimes, your administrator wants you to enter extra information about your user account or the type of document that you're checking. Previously, Acrolinx would prompt you for this information in a popup window. Now, you enter this information directly in the sidebar. No more annoying popups!
You can now get the add-on directly from the Google add-ons store.
Previously, you had to get the add-on from Acrolinx. The Acrolinx add-on is now publicly available on the Google Apps Marketplace, so you can install just like any other add-on.
