Email Approval Response + Work flow or Process Builder

Hi, 

 Created a approva process on account object, When submitted for approval notification goes out and able to approve or reject via email reply. 

 When approved or rejected there is a status pick list which gets updated to approved or rejected. Based on this value there is a workflow which updates the account owner conditionally but this workflow or process builder is not getting called or firing. Please suggest me what is the issue is there any other logic to be used. 

Problem is when approved via email other workflow or process builder is not getting fired Please suggest me. 

Thanks
Sudhir

It seems like you are trying to fire another workflow based on approval process's field update. As per Salesforce order of execution workflow fires first then the approval process.

You can write a trigger and do the process builder/workflow action in the trigger itself.
