How do I retieve an ID for a Doc within a Doc Set

Current Set Up

Document Set with Multiple Documents within the Doc Set

We have Content Approval On

 

Problem to be Solved

We do not want multiple emails going out to the approvers during the day so I removed the Nintex WF from the List (list WF).  Essentially the WF was just an email notification that an item was awaiting there approval

 

I created a site Workflow to loop thru the list  and send out a summary email for each approver listing the name of the document that requires there approval.  In addition I provide a link to the Approve/Reject view.  I have no plans on providing a link to the document itself within the email.  Much to my horror I discovered after spending an hour on the workflow the loop only pulls in ID's for the Document Set not the Documents !

 

Questions

#1-How can I create a site workflow to determine if any document is pending approval

#2-How do I prevent someone from loading a document to the Top Folder.  Some people are loading documents to the top folder and not within the document set.
