I'm designing a software to receive requests from users. In my request detail window, I have a field called "Requested By" to store the name of the person who made the request. However, "Requested By" is very hard to use in a message such as:
"Do you really want to send an email to the requested by?"
I'm looking for a noun to replace "requested by". So, my question is: What do you call someone who makes a request?
The requester, the initiator...
I have already rejected "Applicant" because in my case the user is not applying; he is requesting.
