I am a fairly new SharePoint owner for my group SharePoint and I have not been able to find an answer to this issue. I have configured the settings set up for access requests to send me and email, and I do receive these when a request comes through from our SharePoint.
There is another user on the group SharePoint that often receives access requests for our SharePoint. These requests only go to him and do not show up in the Access requests for me to approve on SharePoint. These requests do not have a reason for requesting access, and often the think they are trying to request access to tells me I do not have access (I think the files have maybe been deleted).
Does anyone have an explanation as to what might be going on? The person on my team receiving these emails is annoyed to be receiving them and I would like to fix the issue. I would also like to be able to manage all requests for access to our site that are coming through.
