Workflow link to list item


Posted by MES5464 - Oct 8 ’13 at 11:45

I need to include a link to the list item in the body of a workflow email.

Everything I read says I should manually make a <a> tag with the url to the form and ID.

Such as:

<a href="mysharepoint/DisplayForm.aspx?ID=##>Go to link</a>

However, my list has several different forms for different user groups.

How do I make the link?

I have pointed it at the default display form but the link still only downloads a file from the server instead of taking the user to the list item.

    If you wish to redirect users to one of your forms based on the rules, you have to provide them with the following link:


    Also you can force them to open the one specific form. In this case you have to find the name of the form file at the left bottom corner of Forms Designer e.g. fd_Item_724f7072-630c-4a42-aeca-93812a9e1ae8_Display.aspx and provide users with the following link:
