Get Document URL Nintex 365

I must stress this question is for Nintex and SharePoint online. The resources I have found so far focus on On-Prem solutions and I have so far been unable to convert those processes into a Nintex 365 format.

 

I am trying to use the new Nintex feature to Email with attachments. It works great with documents attached to the list item, however the process of finding the document in the document library and attaching it manually to the list item is a timely process. As such when the "Send" button in the form is activated and the workflow begins I would like a workflow to retrieve the URLs of the documents in the document library associated with the current list item.

 

Here is an image of where I need to enter the URL:

The instructions make this seem like a walk in the park. It suggests the URL would be simple, so I entered for example stw/helpdesk/instruction/NE16023.doc.

This did not work and on closer inspection of the document in the document library the full URL of the file is: https://summersinman.sharepoint.com/STW/helpdesk/_layouts/15/DocIdRedir.aspx?ID=A2QAPDAFPJZK-9-169 and the file name is NE16023.doc.

 

I need the workflow to attach the Word document in the document library when the name of the file equals the project ID of the list item, in this case I need document NE16023 to be attached to the email when the "send" button is pressed in the form for list item "NE16023".

There appears to be no link between the document name and the URL, so the simple explanation circled above in the picture does not help me.

 

Hope someone can help me.
