You need permission to access this published document - Solved
If you are using G Suite and experiencing following error, we’ll solve it in this article.
Error-:You need permission to access this published document.
You are signed in as firstname.lastname@example.org, but you don’t have permission to access this published document. You may need to sign in as a different user.
Why this error?
You get this error because your company’s G Suite Administrator has NOT enabled receiving files from outside.
Which means even if you try to access a publicly available Google document or sheet of slide such as example sheet on this G Suite support page you’ll still get error.
You will need to change Drive sharing setting in your G Suite Admin Console and allow receiving files from outside.
You can do that for all of your users or for some specific ones based on organization unit.
I have put step by step instructions below with the screenshots.
Login to your G Suite Admin Console as shown in the video.
Note -: If you Not a super or delegated G Suite Admin, you’ll need to them to change this setting as it needs access to G Suite control panel.
Go to Google Drive Share Settings.
Path –> Admin Console –> Click on Apps –> Click on Google Drive –> Click on Sharing Settings
