Sorry for top-reply, but GMail on Android has no way to change it.
Anyways, I can suggest some ways:
- File a Request (already suggested)
- Open a Request
- Make a Request
I'm not a native English speaker (I'm Italian) but I think this can be a good alternative.
I, sometimes, do have some misunderstanding with "File request" but "File a request" would be a really clear way of handling it.
