When someone requests access to a Drive file, Google first sends an email with the access request. Now, Gmail users will be able to manage that request directly from that email, without leaving the message.
“Specifically, you’ll receive a dynamic email that lets you review the request, choose the access level (e.g. edit, comment, or view), and grant access directly from the email,” said Google in a blog post.
Prior to this, users were required to open the document in a new tab or app to manage the access request.
Google also specified that now on, Gmail users will receive access request emails from a new email address: [email protected]
This feature will be on by default if dynamic email is available for users and they don’t need to follow any steps to turn it on.
Further, it is available to Essentials, Business Starter, Business Standard, Business Plus, Enterprise Essentials, Enterprise Standard, Enterprise Plus, Education, Enterprise for Education, and Non-profits customers, and users with personal Google Accounts.
