Admin Access Needed For Scripts?

Hi

 

I'm trying to add a script to my clients' accounts where I have standard access and not admin access and I keep getting an error message that says: 

 

This script is currently not authorized to run in your account.

Please start the authorization process again.

 

Have any of you experienced this problem and know how to resolve it?

 

Thanks

Hi @Shaun F, silly question, I know, but have you tried the normal authorisation process?  What does it say?

 

Did you start the script from new, or is it one that was already on the Account?

Its a new script. I assume I am doing the normal authorizations process. 

 

Before I can preview my script there is a yellow strip that says:

 

"Before you preview this script, please authorize it to access this account on your behalf.  Authorize now"
 
Once I push the authorize now button I get a pop up asking me to authorize a list of permissions.
 
I seem to be having a problem authorizing Google to have offline access. Thats the only permission that keeps getting rejected.
 
The rejection note says this:
 

"This script is currently not authorized to run in your account.

Please start the authorization process again.

"
 
 
And if it helps, there is also a picture of a cat hidden in the error notice Smiley Happy

Hi @Shaun F not quite the same situation as this user has Admin rights at the MCC level, but it's the same stumbling block:
