Notification when a sheet is updated from an Update Request


I send quite a few Update Requests to students. I have not found a reliable way to receive notification that a student has responded. On my own workflows, I add a Student Comments field and use conditional formatting to notice when the field is not blank. However, they do not always read the instructions and leave the field empty or use highlight changes to see changes.

I need to create a solution for my boss who rarely uses Smartsheet. I would like to find a more reliable system to notify him when an Update Request has been completed. Has anyone found a reliable way to get a notification to a completed Update Request?
