In Gmail, there is an option to delegate other accounts that you might need access to. This is underused and one of the features of Gmail that helps prevent having to sign in and out of accounts in the same browser.
You might be familiar with using Google Chrome profiles which gives access to multiple accounts that includes bookmarks, browser settings, extensions, and other useful Google tools.
With email delegation, you will be able to see the accounts delegated to you (screenshot below) and to read or respond to emails - depending on the account setup.
To setup the delegated account, follow the process outlined below.
> Go to the upper right hand corner of your screen and click on Settings
> Use the Accounts tab and click on Add another account
> A new window will open with the below screen. Enter the email address to setup. Then, Next Step.
> You'll be greeted with a confirmation Are you sure? message.
> Check the inbox of the account you granted access to (fill in blanks with your email/name)
> Accept the request and view what the account will be able to do
> A message has the confirmation as well as rights for what the account will have access to.
> Now, go back to your email and click on your My Account picture (might be a letter) to see delegated accounts!
You can always go into your account and revoke the access if you need to. Once revoked, the delegated account will no longer be shown.
