How to create link to item properties in another list

Jump to solution

We have a workflow that copies a file from one document library (source) to another (target). When the file is copied from the source to the target, the workflow on the source library sends out a notification. Is it possible to include a link in the notification to the item properties view of the file in the target list? If so, how is this done? Thanks in advance.

I think it should be doable.

not sure what action you use to copy documents, but they use to return URL of target/new document or at least its ID. based on this you should be able to build a link.

it'd look like 

<libraryURL>/Forms/DispForm.aspx?ID=<NewDocID>

Hi Marian,

Thanks for the reply. I am using the Copy to SharePoint Action. Are you saying to create a NewDocID variable and then store the results from the Copy to SharePoint Action in this variable?

Thanks.

yes, exactly

Are you saying to create a NewDocID variable

yes, create a varibele, but actually the action returns document URL, not an ID
