Collections are created as read only if user profile is not email verified #6187
Please read through the guidelines before creating a new issue.
Describe the bug
Collection is created as read only and doesn't tell user why.
When you hover over the collection it tells you why it is read-only.
App information (please complete the following information):
Thanks @jongio. Accounts with unverified email shouldn't lead to creating read-only collections. If this is still happening for you, it might be a bug. Could you share the logs from (View > Developer > Show Logs) to firstname.lastname@example.org with the email title as "Logs for GH#6187"? It'll help us understand what's happening at your end.
Had the same issue. Switched to the desktop version finally, logged in with Google, and I can only create read-only Collections. There doesn't seem to be a way around or out of it. Windows 7, 64bit, Postman v7.0.7. Tried restarting the app. Finally waited a bit, and restarted again, and it worked, and loaded the data from my chrome app. But there was no indication of any error in the UI the first 2 times, just locked collections when created. Sent logs in email. Not a big deal now, that it started working, but kind of a pain at the get-go. Did not have the chrome app open. Maybe his issue was similar, and the time it took him to verify his email was enough to allow the problem to remedy.
