Common issue: wrong account

Remember to use your LIGO.ORG google identity

It is common for people to experience authentication or authorisation failures when accessing google documents because they are using their personal google account instead of their LIGO.ORG-connected one.

To switch, just click the profile icon in the top right-hand corner and select your account.

Not for official documents

Do not use Google docs for official documents

The Google Workspace service for LIGO.ORG is limited to LIGO.ORG account holders, which currently excludes KAGRA members, for example. Also, there is no guarantee that this service will not be withdrawn at any time in the future, and hosted documents will be lost.

For that reason, all official documents should be hosted in the relevant Document Control System.
