Unicheck Add-on in action
The process of Add-on workflow may be described in just 3 steps: install, sigh in, get check report. But modesty of actions is underpinned with serious background such as full featured functionality and comprehensive check results.

Unicheck add-on boasts high quality of search, which provides only the relevant links to the found matches, and uses live web index. Unicheck also supports almost all alphabet languages and automatically saves the reports of all checked Google Docs in the user’s personal library.

Unicheck add-on is easy to install and has a very simple and intuitive interface. To use it, though, the system will ask to sign in to the user’s Unicheck account. This, however, can be done within the Google doc, and takes just a few seconds. This step is very important, as Add-on is directly bound to user’s Unicheck account.

Installation of the add-on is free of charge, and all new users receive 5 free pages for their checks.

Clicking “Start check” lets the system count the amount of pages in a document, and it takes just few seconds to get a report. The report will display general similarity score in percents, list of similarity sources, citations, and references in the document. The full report uses color mask which is fully interactive.
