Permissions are required to enable RGES to access the relevant types of Google data: Emails, Google Drive files, Calendar, Contacts, Tasks, etc.
Each permission is required to perform a specific RGES Chrome Extension (Add-In) or Sync Engine function. In case some of the permissions are not granted, the Extension will be usable except for the affected functions. Still, the Sync Engine will fail with an error “ISGC-004: Authorization error.
