Google are introducing a new file access experience to make it easier for file approvers to respond to pending access requests across Google Workspace.
Currently, when users request access to a file, the approvers receive an email with the option to share the file or decline the request. With this update, users can review and respond to requests from within the file. Approvers will see a notification dot on the “Share” button if they have a pending access request and a new banner at the top of the sharing dialog.
Approvers can continue to respond to access requests through the existing emails that are sent when users request access to files. If the “Notify” checkbox is selected when an approver responds to a request, the user who requested access will receive an email with the status of the request.
