Hi,

Here is my workflow scenario.

-User uploads a document, the document status is set to "released"
-A notification is sent to a particular user telling him to acknowledge
-The document status should be automatically set to "aknowledged" after the user has read the email notification.

Can you help how to do this in SPD 2013 designer workflow?

Thanks,

Sharepoint has no way to know when somebody reads an email.
Only way to get around this is to include a link (or better yet a task) in the workflow that the user can interact with
