Within my workflow using SPD I am using the "Create New Item" action to create a new Task list item this is fired when a holidayrequest item is created.

My problem is I cannot see how to create/store a link back to the orignial holiday request item that created the task, so I can display this in the Task's edit form.

When assigning the values to the newly created task, when specifying the field that will hold the URL, click the 'fx' button to carry out a workflow lookup.

Select 'Current Item' as the source and 'Source URL' as the field.

  • Thanks, from the 'Current Item' I have the choice of 'Server Relative URL' and 'URL Path'. Looks like 'URL Path' will work.
