Google Sheets Input can't sign me in

I'm trying to log in to my google sheets account, but the interface in Alteryx is telling me that "This browser or app may not be secure." I'm not even to the password part - just entered my email address, and it gave me this error message and won't let me go farther.

 

Any idea what the problem might be?

Hello everyone,

 

Have you already tried checkin the authorize 'unsecure apps'?:

The other reason would be a bug affecting the latest installation of google chrome 79, althought I am not sure about this one.

Hi 

 

I also encounter the same issue.  Have already allowed less secure app on google but still doesn't work. Any update yet?

Hi,

 

The fix I found was that I was using an old version of the Google Sheets Tools.  I downloaded a new version (11.3) and was able to connect both via the email login and through the Google Console login.

Hi All -

 

Just wanted to share a solution that worked for me.   First this issue did drive me to brink -  I tried everything including uninstalling alteryx and chrome.   To make it worse I had colleagues who could connect - even when using the same account I was using.

 

What worked for me was deleting the macros -   Mine was in  appdata-->roaming-->Alteryx-->tools.     I tried reinstalling the macros (v 2.0) - which is listed on the gallery page as for version 11.5 or later (didnt work).      So I deleted it again and installed version 10.5 (listed as version 10.5 or later) and this works!!

 

For reference the gallery page is here:

So again not sure if this an issue with v2.0 or what -  but if you are stuck and desperate to get this working try version 10.5

Have tried all the above solutions and none seem to be working for us, our google sheets input sign in issue has only happened today for majority of users, anyone have any other suggestions
