Indeed! I now have all my contacts imported. The grand adventure continues!

Thad from Inkshares just got back to me and they have fixed this bug (at least for me). @Trick Dempsey - try it again and see if it is now working for you.

Hi @Trick Dempsey - I’ve had *some* contact with Inkshares on this issue via email, but so far have not been able to resolve it. I’ll let them know another user has reported hitting the same issue.

I am getting this same exact error.

I just re-tested (still happening). However, I noticed something I didn’t the first time which might explain why the system is failing:

The address of the error page is: https://www.inkshares.com/auth/failure?message=invalid_credentials&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.inkshares.com%2Fbooks%2Fhuman-resources%2Fdashboard&strategy=google_oauth2#

My google account has multiple email addresses associated with it (I’ve accumulated quite a few over the years). The primary email for my account is one I don’t use actively anymore (you can’t change the primary email on your google account). 

The URL includes a failure message that isn’t displayed in the page content "invalid credentials" - I wonder if the problem is that my Inkshares account is set up with a different email address to my Google ID?

I just tried to import my google contacts to my project from the project dashboard screen. I made it to the google page asking for me to "allow" the permissions necessary, but after clicking on the allow button I ended up at an Inkshares error page, and no contacts imported.
