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,
