how to get the edit form link of a sharepoint custom list item

Jump to solution

Hello,

I am trying to figure out the best way to get the link to the Edit form of an item that is in a SharePoint 2013 custom list item.

I need to include this link, to the edit form in the custom list, in an email in the workflow that I have created, that goes to the initiator of the item in the custom list when the approver is asking for more information about the item that they are being asked to approve.

Hopefully someone can help out.

Thanks

You can use this link Insert Reference

Web URL/Lists/List Name/EditForm.aspx?ID={List item ID}

Hello Sojan,

Using your example, this did not work out so well.

I used the following link in the URL:

https://webURL/dept/accounting/Lists/Orders/EditForm.aspx?ID={List item ID}

Here is the link that was returned:

https://webURL.com/dept/accounting/poreq/Lists/Orders/EditForm.aspx?ID=%7bList%20item%20ID%7d#Inplvi...

The above link when the user clicks on it opens the SharePoint DefaultEdit form not for a particular List ID item in the custom list, but a blank new DefaultEdit form from the list that I have.

If you have a chance please have a look and see if you can see anything wrong.

Thank you

WebURL and {List Item ID} are the references that you have to insert. 

In the email notification, use the Insert Reference button and select these from the respective tabs. List Item ID will be in Item Properties tab and WebURL will be in Common tab.

Web URL is the reference that you need to insert, it brings the whole url where the list exists.

You need to use list internal name.

Here is the Format

If you are not find Site URL in Common section you can use Web URL. It definitely fixes your issue.

Hello Ramana,

Thank you for your input on this question. I have taken your example and am going to try it  out. It looks like you are using Nintex for Office 365, correct me if I am wrong.

I am using an on premise deployment of SharePoint 2013 and Nintex Workflow 2013 for Workgroup.

Below is a screen shot of what I have created based on your response:

Let me know if you think this looks like it will work.

Thank you

No need for '+' in the URL. This is from SP2013 on prem:
