Adding Multiple Emails to Access Request Settings in Microsoft SharePoint 2013

Adding Multiple Emails to Access Request Settings in Microsoft SharePoint 2013

Background

When a user has no access to a SharePoint site, or an app within a site, they are presented with a page requesting that they add a message to explain why they require access.

When the user types a message and hits the Send Request button an email is sent not to those within the site owners group, but rather to the email addresses declared in the Access Request Settings. It is therefore important to know where to add these email address and how. The behaviour of these setting has changed from SharePoint 2010 to 2013.

Method

Firstly, you need to have full control permissions in order to access the Access Request Settings, which is done through the following steps.
1. Click on the settings cog on the top right of your site.

The above image shows one email address added to the Access Request settings. In SharePoint 2010 multiple email address are accepted in the Access Request Settings and are separated with a semicolon ( ; ) as per below

However, in SharePoint 2013 the semicolon has been swapped with a comma. So now all multiple email address being added to the Access Request settings need to be separated by a comma.
