When setting up the Google Suite (mail/calendar) integration, Workable will request to connect to your Gmail account. This is required so that conversations and events can be synced between Workable and Gmail.
Each user in a Workable account needs to grant access to use the integration. The level of access that is required for the integration to work is known as a "gmail.modify" scope. This is an option that Google makes available to companies (like Workable) so that they can integrate with Gmail.
Workable needs these permissions to:
- Import past communication with a candidate from Gmail to Workable
- Add emails sent from Workable directly to your Sent folder in Gmail
