I have been working on an 'issue list' in which one user 'add an item' and assign responsibility to another user. I created a workflow in SPD 2013 and assign "Encoded Absolute URL" for an item. The purpose was the responsible user gets an email with the link to an issue and when he/she clicks on the link it will take the user to the SharePoint issue item.
The user is getting email but the link in an email is not working. When user click on the link, a file of size 0 KB is downloaded rather to take the user on the list item.
