Creating a Google Account Using Your Work Email

Ever had a colleague invite you to collaborate on a Google Doc using your work email and get prompted to request access using your gmail account? To avoid this, you can create a Google account using your work email (e.g. @xyzcorp.com) instead of the default @gmail.com or subscribing to GSuite. When your work email is a Google account, you can use it to login wherever there is a prompt for a Google account (Google Drive, Google SSO Login - Gitlab, Trello, Airtable, Jira, Clubhouse, etc.).

  1. In your browser, set to Incognito mode and go to https://drive.google.com

  2. Click on Create account -> For myself

    Google Signup

  3. Click on β€œUse my current email address instead” and type your work email. Fill in the other fields, then click on next.

    Google Create Account

After doing this, your work email is now a Google account and you can be invited to collaborate on other Google services.
