Enabling Wakelet Access in Google Workspace for Education

The latest changes to Google Workspace for Education have introduced access limitations for users under 18, preventing them from using third-party apps that haven't been set up, such as Wakelet. These users might face error messages that signal trouble with accessing these apps. Notably:

  • Error 400: access_not_configured: This message appears when Wakelet has not been properly set up within Google Workspace.
  • Error 400: admin_policy_enforced: This message indicates that the app has been blocked by an administrator.

Configuring Wakelet Access: A Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Access the Google Admin Console: Sign in with your administrator account at admin.google.com.

  2. Navigate to App Access Control: Locate and select the "App access control" card on the dashboard.

  3. Review App Requests: Click on "Review apps" to view a list of applications that users under 18 have requested access to, organized by the volume of requests.

  4. Configure Wakelet Access: Find Wakelet from the list of apps, select "Configure access," and then choose the appropriate organizational units for which you wish to enable Wakelet.

  5. Determine Access Level:

    • Trusted: Grants complete access to Google data for Wakelet.
    • Limited: Allows Wakelet access only to Google data that is not restricted.
    • Blocked: Denies any access to Google data for Wakelet.
  6. Finalize Settings: After selecting the desired access level, confirm your settings by clicking "Configure access."
