Absolute references to items in unrelated BOs

I am trying to populate a field in a quickaction in knowledge based on the Author. There is no relationship to Employee that is linked to author. 


Logically, I feel that I should be able to say $([Employee# where LoginId = Author].Team) and get the author's team populated, but it tells me that it has to be done through the relationship between FRS_Knowlege and Employee, which is only a link to the Owner, not the Author. 


So, do I create a second relationship between Employee and FRS_Knowledge#IssueResolution to link the author, or is there some more graceful way of getting this information?
