    RECEIVED OR RECEIVE

    May we know if the sentence below is correct?

    Could you please prioritize this job once you RECEIVED the image?

    Re: RECEIVED OR RECEIVE

    There is no context here. Please provide some.

    Normally, I would say 'once you have received the image".

    Re: RECEIVED OR RECEIVE

    Hello MN;

    But "once you receive" would work if we are referring to the futurity future, wouldn't it, please?

    Re: RECEIVED OR RECEIVE

    "... referring to the future".

    I would say "Please prioritise this job once you receive the image."
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
