No system is perfect. It’s just coded and maintained by humans like you and me.
Similarly Google have many bugs too. One of which I encountered today
I plan to include more bugs as I remember or encounter along the way in this post too! however, let’s start with the one that I remember for now:
When changing user for Google Docs
One of my client created a Google Doc for me and added my email id to allowed persons list to view the document. I clicked on the link and by chance I was logged in with different id. This is what the Google Docs error page said:
You need permission to access this item.
You are signed in as *********@gmail.com, but you don’t have permission to access this item. You can request access from the owner or sign-in as a different user. Learn more
Sign in as a different user
Upon clicking the link saying Sign in as a different user, it took me to a very familiar but not expected and unpleasant page saying:
Internal Server Error
This should have taken me to the logout page and the page to login with the gmail or google id that I want to use to view this Google Doc document!
Anyway, this is seriously a thing to be fixed by google along with many others left badly in their system!
