Adding a Delegate User in Gmail


How do I grant someone access to view and respond to my emails?



  • Gmail





  1. On your computer, open Gmail
    • You can't add delegates from the Gmail app
  2. In the top right, click Settings 
  3. Click See all settings
  4. Click the Accounts tab
  5. Click Add another account in the Grant access to your account section
  6. Enter the email address of the person you want to add
  7. Click Next Step  Send email to grant access

The person you added will get an email asking them to confirm. It may take up to 24 hours for you to see them as a delegate after they confirm.

Watch the video below for a visual walk through of the process. Please note, that the interface to reach the settings page has changed but the rest of the process is still correct.
