Delegating Access to Your Account

Connect Google Workspace allows you to delegate access to your email (and/or calendar) so that other people can manage your email and calendar without having to know your password. Giving your Connect account password out is not recommended.  If you manage Connect functional accounts, you can delegate access to those who require it, on an as needed basis.

For assistance with setting up email delegation, you can view our training video.

When granting access to your account, invite the delegate's <UCSBnetID>@ucsb.edu address.

The delegated account will automatically appear within a short time under the delegate's profile icon in the upper right corner of the Google Mail App. To view it, click the delegate's profile icon and then click the "delegated" account's name. It will open in a new browser tab.

If the delegate is using Microsoft Outlook, they need to follow these instructions to add the account to their Outlook profile:

We suggest you wait one hour after setting up delegation in the Google Workspace Mail App before attempting to add the account to Outlook.
