Issue with the never ending Passive voice
I am new to Grammarly. Thanks in advance for the value of your time and effort.
I could reveal the done deal likewise; I am not certain if it has been officially announced.
Helen, here is a Q&A about passive voice:

'Done Deal' is a colloquialism and should be avoided in formal writing. Your sentence also doesn't exactly make sense. Most of the problem is with likewise. It would help if I understood what it is trying to say, but I can tell you that your biggest problems are with likewise and done deal and not the passive voice. Has been announced officially is not really a problem, as avoiding the passive voice isn't a strict rule, although you could sidestep it by reworking the sentece. I would give you an example but I honestly don't understand where you are going.
