Now, you can easily link your Google Workspace account to Instantly without needing an app password by enabling OAuth app access.

Here are the steps on how to connect Google account via the oAuth method:

Step 1: Login to Instantly and Google Workspace

Open Instantly in one browser tab and your Google Workspace (Gmail) in another.

Step 2: Ensure IMAP is Enabled

Confirm that IMAP is enabled for all email accounts. If not enabled, refer to this article for guidance on enabling IMAP.

Step 3: Access Admin Console

In your Google Workspace Admin console, navigate to "Security" > "API Controls" > "App Access Control".

Step 4: Add Instantly as an OAuth App

Click "View list", then "Add App".

  • Choose "OAuth App Name or Client ID".

  • Copy the Client ID from your Instantly account:

    • Go to Instantly > Add New > Choose Google/G Suite > Select "Yes, IMAP has been enabled" > Choose "Option 2: OAuth".

  • Paste the Client ID into your Google Workspace and click "Search".

  • Select "Instantly" from the search results.

  • Check the box next to Instantly and click "Select".

  • Choose "Trusted" and click "Configure".

Step 5: Complete OAuth Setup

After configuring, "Instantly OAuth v1" will appear in your list of trusted apps.

Return to Instantly and complete the login process:

  • Choose the Google account you want to connect or click "Use another account".

  • Allow access to your Google Workspace account.

Note: If only your workspace admin account is visible here, click "Use another account" to log in to your other Google accounts. It might be worth trying to add these accounts from the Incognito window, in case all of your Google accounts appear here.

In Incognito, your previous login sessions won't be stored, so you can easily add an account you need.

Q: Can I connect another email account from the same Workspace?

A: You can proceed and add all other accounts from the same Workspace by using the same Google accounts connector and choosing the oAuth Method (just proceed to login after selecting the oAuth method since the app access has already been enabled once for that workspace).
