  • In reality, I would likely respond simply with "Done." Jul 16, 2019 at 15:07

Past tense or present perfect are both possible and correct here. You could use present perfect to emphasise the idea that "... and you still have access". But other than that you could use either.

You don't say "the" access, and these are not questions, so no question mark.

I've given you access. Please check.

If you were talking to a friend, there would probably be more chat. This short plain speech is more appropriate if you are talking to an engineer.
