Hello Mathias,

First I hope you are doing this before insert of Event Object.

To get the id of inserted Visit Report records:
trigger on event Create visitreport__c (before insert){

list<visitreport_c> visitreports = new list<visitreport_c>();

// bulkify business logic start 
// bulkify business logic end 

insert visitreports;

//but you have to handle it bulk update as well
for(visitreport_c vr:visitreports){


I hope it will help you.
