I've gotten as far as below:

enter image description here

But I don't know what they want me to choose in the "Find the List Item" section. I don't want anything from the list item... I want the URL of the list. Suggestions?

NOTE I actually have "Current List" selected for my Data source. I was just trying something else out when I took the screen shot...


Just see the screen shot below and select the Current Item there.

    How the hell does this answer the question? How do you get the LISTURL from there?

The "Current Item -> Path" gives you the site relative URL to the list it's in, and you can add the site URL in a string varable to embed it elsewhere.


Construct the URL manually in designer :

Link to dispform.aspx in workflow

  1. Type the majority of the URL in manually : http://server/site/list/DispForm.aspx?ID=
  2. Add or Change Lookup
  3. Select Data source: Current Item
  4. Select Field from source: ID
  5. Final link will look like this: http://server/site/list/DispForm.aspx?ID=[%Current Item:ID%]

    The limitation with this method is that if you have a DEV environment and a PRODUCTION environment, you'll have to remember to come in and update that hardcoded URL bit when you migrate to production.

In SPD2010 there is a lookup that will give you the DispForm URL of the current Item. The URL will display like this http://Server/Site/Lists/ListName/DispForm.aspx?ID=1

  • In designer 2013 this takes you directly to the item, rather than the dispform. Jan 10 '17 at 13:36
