I¹m not trying to be awkward here, just trying to understand this process
as my colleagues here are disagreeing! So, when we or the academic
receives a ³Request Copy² email there is a link in that email to say
³Approve this request² which then takes them to EPrints to confirm that
they approve the request. The requester then receives an email with a link
to download their document. If you¹re saying that this can¹t be done then
isn¹t the above a redundant feature?
