Getting Started with ProWritingAid’s Google Docs Add-on.

by Lisa Lepki Dec 07, 2017, 0 Comments

It’s easy to get the Google Docs add-on set up on your computer. You just need to make sure that your ProWritngAid Premium licence is associated with a Google email address (google.com, gmail.com, etc.)

Install the Add-on

Click here to set up the ProWritingAid Google Docs add-on.

You will be taken to the Google Store, which looks like this:

Click "Install".

Then, go back into Google Docs and open a document. If you click on “Add-ons” in the main menu, you should see ProWritingAid listed there.

Run a Summary Report

We recommend running a Summary Report next:

The summary report shows your document statistics and an overview of the results from all of the other reports. It also includes the key actions you should take that will make the most difference to your document.

Run Individual Reports

Scroll down and see how you fare in all the different categories. When you find an area that you want to concentrate on, run that report for an in-depth look at that area.

Check your email address

Make sure that the email address on your ProWritingAid account is the same email address that you are using in Google Docs. If not, you will need to change the email address associated with your ProWritingAid account.

You can change the email address associated with your account at any time on prowritingaid.com

  • Log in to your account.
  • Click on your username in the top right-hand corner of the screen.
  • Follow the "Edit my user details" link.
  • Change your email address and hit "Save".
  • Check your email for a link to confirm your new email address.
