I'm trying to use Google Docs with Dropbox and I'm having issues with Safari.
I've created a doc, but when I go to edit it, Safari says:
"Google Sheets needs access
Google Sheets needs to authenticate your session. Please allow cookie access for Google Sheets by clicking here.
I am having the same problem.
I made a gsheet in my company dropbox account (using chrome).
Then share it so other people could edit using the "link".
I can't open it in safari normal mode (the same message as above appear), so...
I tried the private mode and clear cache.
Then, I tried to login using my personal dropbox account.... it doesn't work.
Still the same message...
I tried login in safari also using company dropbox account... it doesn't work.
Still the same message....
Can you let me know if you've tried the steps I mentioned above?
If this doesn't help, can you just confirm for me that the email address associated with your Dropbox account is the same as the email address used for your Google account?
Let me know what you find - Thanks!
Hello there @Willy_Warbucks,
From the version of Safari that you mentioned, could you check to see if there are any pending updates to see if that will help with the issue you're having?
From what the OP quoted about the error they received, are you able to click the option to "Learn more to allow access to third-party cookies"? If so and you receive another error, would you mind sending along a screenshot of that (excluding any personal info)?
Finally, can you let me know if the issue persists when you're using another web browser or if this is isolated just to Safari?
Let me know what you find and we'll go from there - thanks!
I'm having the same issue. Has there been a resolution? Using the latest updated version of Safari, cleared cache, and tried in private mode. I get a message that I must be signed into Google docs in order to use sheets. (Despite already being signed into google in browser). I sign in, and then it just takes me back to a Google page that says 'Sign in to continue'. When I click on Sign In, it seems like it is about to open a new page, but then simply takes me back to the page on 'Sign In to Continue'. I keep clicking on Sign In, and it keeps taking me back to the same page telling me to sign in.
