Manage Multiple Google Accounts with Ease using Delegated Accounts or Chrome Profiles

If you work with more than one Google account, you’ve likely had some frustrating experiences. This blog post will provide you with some tools to make managing these multiple accounts a breeze. We would like to bring your attention to Delegated Accounts and Chrome Profiles and the different benefits of each. Please refer to the chart below for a summation of the main benefits of each tool. For more information on how to set up and use these tools please reference our knowledge base articles linked below.

Delegate accounts: you may want to give access to your email account to another person. Mail delegation allows the delegate to read, send, and delete messages on your behalf through their own account. Please reference this article for how to set up a Delegated Account.

For example, a manager can delegate email access to another person in their organization, such as an administrative assistant. Another great use for delegation is shared email accounts

Important things to note:

1. Delegated accounts cannot be accessed via mobile applications, ONLY on computers.

2. After a delegated email is set up, it may take a few seconds to a few hours for the changed to reflect in your account. Please refresh the tab where the account is open frequently until you see the change has been applied.
