I am logged in to both the company google docs’ gmail as well as my private (normal) gmail simultaneously (i keep both tabs open in chrome all the time), which seems to work fine most of the time.
But about half the time when i try to access a google docs spreadsheet, it says i’m not permitted to see it, it claims that my normal gmail account is not allowed to see it. It seems to ignore the fact that i’m also logged into the company google docs as well.
So i have to log out of my normal gmail, open the spreadsheet (or other document), then log back into my normal gmail.
Any ideas how to improve this? Or is this just another google bug?
Exactly the same happens to me. What I do is the following.
1. First open my work mail
2. open my googledocs from work mail
3. open a file of googledocs (this is just in case)
4. open my personal gmail
Another option is to use 2 different browsers
If I’d want to have two Gmail accounts open, I’d use Chrome and Firefox. Try that, there won’t be much confusion.
