Adding Workspace Skills to your Third Party Allowlist

If third-party app access is blocking anyone from signing into Howdou. This page explains the changes that are rolling out - but the quickest solution to fix this is: 

(a) Press Request Access on the error message 
(b) Someone with Google Admin Console Access - head to Apps Access Control and you should see Howdou on the "Apps Pending Review" List - and you can then approve it for use.

If you are the user who experienced the block message - it may also be that your age settings are incorrect - as (in theory) it's normally Under 18's who are blocked.
