Do you give users the friendlier Access Request dialog?

Instead of displaying a direct " Access Denied " warning info, you can allow end users to send an " Access Request ". PermissionRequest.jpg Figure: Joanna is requesting access to SharePoint site

The "request manager" will receive an email:

637cf8 RequestNotificationEmail

Figure: Request Notification Email Sample The link in the email will navigate administrator to the Pending Requests list: LinkToPendingRequestsList Figure: Pending Requests List After reading the request infomation, the administrator can "Approve" or "Decline" the request, or he can start a conversation with the request user on the Pending Requests list directly to inquire more information: StartAConversatioinOnPendingList Figure: possible actions for requests (Approve, Decline or start a conversation with the request user)

To setup permission request for a SharePoint site collection, go to " Site Settings (Gear Wheel icon) | Site Permissions ": SetupPermissionRequest Figure: Open "Access Request" setting

Limition: This "Access Request" only works for authenticated users to inquire more access permission, that means if your site allows "anonymous access", then an anonymous user cannot send "access request" as he doesn't have an identify to be assigned more access permission.
