Things to keep in mind
  • If you do not have the View Read Requests permission, you will not be able to see any requests, even the ones you created.

  • If you have the Edit Read Requests permission but not the View Read Requests permission, the read request will be created, you will receive an error, you will not see the request in the list, but no notification will be sent to the readers.
