Error: Insightly does not have sufficient permissions to access Google Apps

Google has renamed G Suite to Google Workplace.

If you are seeing permissions errors like "Warning: Insightly does not have sufficient permissions to access your Google Apps domain," you will need to enable Insightly permissions in your G Suite admin console.

If you see the error on the System Settings > Users page in Insightly, this may also indicate that you are not an administrator in both systems.

You must be an admin in both Insightly and G Suite to add G Suite users to Insightly, and you must be a G Suite admin to access the following pages.

To verify if your permissions are set up properly:

  1. Once logged into G Suite, go to your main Gmail page. Click the Settings gear and select Manage this domain.
  2. Click the Apps icon.
