Problem: I have 1 list and 1 document library. I want to automatically create a folder in the document library for each list item in the list. Then a lookup field named "Activity Documents" in the list item should point to the created folder in the document library.

Question: How can I do this in a workflow (SharePoint 2010 / SharePoint Designer 2010) that runs automatically when a new list item is created?

Currently I am ready to create the folder, but the workflow does not fill the lookup field... it just stays empty.

Many thanks in advance!

  • I don't think you can create columns or set Lookup Column sources with workflows. You will probably need to resort to JavaScript to get this done. Try looking at this SO thread: stackoverflow.com/questions/21209228/… – C. Dennett Aug 10 '18 at 19:55
