Google Sheets—
Account authorization blocked

We are currently investigating an issue that appeared on May 26, 2022, where new authorizations for Templater are being blocked by Google with a "This app is blocked" error message on the consent screen after logging into your Google Account. This issue seems to be limited to Google accounts that have never previously authorized Templater, though it is possible that other accounts may experience issues. We are working with Google to resolve this issue ASAP.

For the moment, we recommend that if you are not able to authorize Templater to access your Google Sheets, that you download that data as JSON or TSV data files.
