The top of the screen is very important. It displays the Request Type. In many cases it will be Grant Access, but in some cases it may say Revoke Access.

If a user already has access to a folder and another request is made to revoke access for a user to that folder make sure you are approving the correct action. If you approve a Revoke request, that user will no longer have permission to that  folder. If you decline a Revoke request, the means the user will still have their current permissions.


Once a permissions request is approved or declined for a user an email will be sent to that user.

Part 1: The request type (i.e. Grant or Revoke).


Part 3: A link that goes to the permissions site and displays, in more detail, information on the request.

The rest of the email contains additional instructions and information that is useful such as mapping a network drive to a computer and contact information.
