Show a reusable element by clicking a repeating group item

So, I’m creating the mobile web version of my app but trying to follow the guidelines for native apps (planning ahead). As such, I’m keeping the mobile version to a single page and displaying changes in content using elements. I ran into a problem, however, which seems like it would be fairly common.

The default page of the mobile app contains a repeating group element. This element is used to display a feed of posts. I would like the user to be able to tap on a feed item in order to be taken to a detail view of that item (contained within it’s own reusable element). Unfortunately, the “Show an element” action only provides options for elements within it’s own repeating group. Ideally, I would like to show the post detail element and pass the post’s ID.

Am I missing something? Is this type of workflow supported?

As always, your help is greatly appreciated.

You’re trying to show a reusable element? or an element within a reusable element? If it’s the later, you’re going to have an issue indeed, but if that’s whole reusable element it should be at the top of the list.
