    Your Workfront administrator might make the following changes to the Home icon in your environment:

    • Replace it with an image customized to illustrate your organization. In this case, the icon will look different that shown in this article.
    • Replace the page linked to it with a different page. In this case, click the Main Menu in the upper-right corner of the page, then click Home.
  2. In the Work List, select the access request you want to manage.

  3. In the upper-right corner, click the grant access button.
    Depending on the type of access requested, the button name changes. For example, if the requestor asks for View access, the button says Grant View Access.

  4. (Optional) To grant a different level of access than requested, click the arrow next to the grant access button and select the new access.
    A message appears confirming access was granted.
    Click Ignore to deny access.
    A message appears confirming access was ignored.
