We have a list where if the user creates a new item the end product is a folder in a document library. We would like to have a column in the list that stores the url of the folder created in the library.

We have worked out how to hard code this in but is there a way using workflow where we can dynamically get the full url of this item - doesn't seem to be an option.

  • Which version of sharepoint? – Atish Dipongkor - MVP Oct 8 '15 at 16:30
  • I don't think you can get the full folder URL from within a workflow on your list. I do think you could write the ID of the list item as a property of your folder, and from a workflow on the library when the folder is created, set a URL in the list item. – Erin L Oct 8 '15 at 19:37

Create a column in your library and set its value in workflow like following.

enter image description here

I have tested it by setting document's URL in Title column.

Encoded Absolute URL column will return you document's full URL.
