Here at Machine, we work with several Google products on a daily basis, and will often send invites and assets to clients who don’t yet have a Google account associated with their work email address.
Clients then try to view the assets (documents, spreadsheets), and are asked to sign in. They sign in with their personal Gmail account, but since the original asset wasn’t shared with that account, they need to request access.
