Lookup linked item through lookup field

Question asked by thomas.stoller on Nov 5, 2015

I have the following challenge. We have two lists Events and Participants. When creating a Participant item a lookup field has to be filled, where the Event needs to be selected. This is everything straight forward.


Then a workflow is started with every new created Participant. In the workflow I need to assign a value from the linked Event to a workflow variable.

I thought this was an easy task, because I have the ID from the Event item in my lookup field. But when I use the value in the lookup field in Nintex it is only the Title and no ID from the Event item. How can I get the ID, because I don't like to filter the list based on the title text (because it might change).


Any solutions?
