How to Query a List By URL

Question asked by koolgeex on Dec 21, 2018

I'm using SharePoint 2010 and Nintex workflow 2010. 

 

I have a workflow that I want to re-use each month.

 

Each month i will create a list with this name format: [MonthName] [Year] Report. 

 

If I create a workflow that queries the current list (ex. December 2018 Report), I have to use the dropdown menu to select the list title. 

 

That means, if i try to import this workflow into another list, I'll have to first create the new list, and then change the list name in the drop down.

 

Since i will know the name of all future lists, I want to cut this step out.

 

Is there a way to query a list just by using the list URL? I would create a URL using variables that can change each month to point to the correct list.

 

Any suggestions?
