# How to Manually Get Transaction Type References?

Workato provides a comprehensive list of transaction types available in Workday in a multiselect picklist. However, should you decide to manually input of the Workday IDs (WIDs) inside the "Transaction Type References" field within "Request Criteria", you may find the them by making use of the "Get References" action to retrieve the list of references and their WIDs.

You may refer to the following sample recipe (opens new window) which retrieves all the transaction type references' details, appends them into a list, and logs them for easy viewing.
