Acrolinx checks your email body and subject line. If you check an email thread (like when replying to a mail), Acrolinx will check the entire thread, but any cards relating to the previous messages will be inactive.
Acrolinx doesn't check items like Meetings, Appointments, and Tasks.
Acrolinx for Outlook comes with your Acrolinx for Office on Windows package.
If you do the installation yourself, you might need to ask your Acrolinx administrator for the installer file.
Here's how to install Acrolinx:
- Close all programs, including Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Outlook.
- Double-click the installer in Windows and follow the on-screen instructions.
You can change your Acrolinx address by signing out and signing in again. Sign out from the slide-out menu in the Sidebar.
Optional: Configure Content Profiles
Acrolinx for Outlook supports server-side content extraction processing. You can define the extraction settings by adding and uploading Content Profiles to your server installation. You'll need Acrolinx 5.3 or later to do this. Configure your Content Profiles using the instructions in the section Content Profiles . However, your guidance package also comes with default Content Profiles.
Optional: Specify the Address of an Acrolinx Server with an MSI Installer Property
If you use the MSI installer properties to automate the installation of Acrolinx, you can also now specify your Acrolinx address. This means writers don't have to enter this information themselves. To set your Acrolinx address, use the property ACROLINX_SERVER_ADDRESS.
Specify the Acrolinx address.
Example:Note: This property works for first-time installations only. Acrolinx ignores the property during an update and uses whichever Acrolinx address is currently configured.
