Questions regarding Account Access and inviting others to it

Follower ✭ ☆ ☆

In the Account Access tab of the account settings, I see the following:
Invite others to access this account
Send invitations to people to access this AdWords account. Your invitee can accept your invitation and access your account with their email address, even if their email is associated with other AdWords accounts. The invitee will be able to access the account immediately after accepting the invite. We'll notify you when your invitee responds.
New! You can now grant someone access to an AdWords account even if they already have access to another AdWords account.
So, here are my questions:
1. Does the Invitee need to have an MCC to be invited?
2. Does the Invitee need to have an AdWords account to be invited?
3. Does the Invitee need to have a Google (or G Suite) account to be invited?
4. Using the API, it seems we can only invite another MCC to get access to an account. ("must be a client or manager account that is not currently managed by a manager account in your hierarchy.") This does not seem to work like the new feature documented above - to grant anyone access to the account based on their email. Is there any way to do this using the API?
 
Thank you.

Hi @Alon D,

 

Here are the answers for your queries:

1) No (Not mandatory)

2) No (Not mandatory). The NEW feature is focusing on the same point.

3) No (Not mandatory), yahoo or any other email address can also be used to sign-up/sign-in AdWords account.

4) In the highlighted NEW feature, Google has not mentioned that is it for API.

I see. So I guess my last question is - when will this feature be available
via the API? Perhaps beta access?

Who do I ask?

I'm seeing this message:

But it's not working?
