Caution: If you select yes for the Auto-accept requests option, any user requesting access to this group will automatically be added as a member of the group and receive the permission levels associated with the group.
I am attempting to get exactly the functionality described in this warning in a SharePoint site (it is a sub-site of another site) which does not inherit permissions from the larger site.
I have no idea what I need to change to get this to work as intended. This is the only permission group which has "Allow requests to join" selected, the only group which has "Auto-Accept requests" selected, the group is the default group for the site, but in spite of this I get email requests.
- What do I need to do to actually get "auto accept requests" to work for a group for a SharePoint site?
