Copy List Item
The ability create copies of current list items (workflow context) should be included.
Copy an Item action has been released and is now available for use. You can find this action in the Integration category of the toolbox.
Update-> Updated my connection credentials, then it worked.

when this willl be live ?
OK, 4 years after being suggested. 2 years after been set to planned. Where is this?
This is stopping us from migrating current solutions that have a lot of columns, to newer versions of the form, which we can now setup to work more efficiently.
Do you know when this planned action will be actually implemented? It is almost 2 years since in the plans and still not present in the product.
We have many processes using that action in on premise that need to be moved to O365 and that will help a lot, large companies especially.
This has been set to planned since summer 2018. Do we have any indication as to when this will be started? This was requested first in 2014.

Yes! A toggle that turns off errors...
I have a situation where the action works exactly the way I want it too but because the target and the source are not identical, it throws errors.
...or Error Handling.
This has been planned for over 6 months now. Any indication as to when this will be started and/or implemented?
Could copying list item attachments to document libraries be included in this action as well? Similar to the on-premise action.
It must copy the Nintex form on the item. The FormData in nintex forms are lost on copy item, so if you are copying from one list to another that have the same setup, the Nintex form with repeating sections and non-connected fields should keep their value.
In addition, having the ability to copy list items' data (almost) in entirety, would greatly assist migration between versions of 365 Forms. Currently, this nearly always needs to be an in-place change. Creating the new version and using workflows to migrate the data over to the new form version would be a great tool. We hope to use Universal Forms, when it comes to 365 - we'd really benefit from having a tool to 1) copy test data; 2) migrate over previous data to the new forms list.
When we used InfoPath, copying the form (with attachments) to another form library (with the same form template) was a great way of archiving non-active forms, keeping the current library from getting clogged up with older non-active entries.
I would love to see this with Nintex 365 in lists.
Sounds Great Rick thank you!
Not only for Lists but also a Copy/or Move Library Item, include the following:
- Versioning Yes/No
- Retain Source Yes/No
- Skip / Overwrite Item in Target
- Meta Data Include Yes/No
- Content Type Yes/No
As stated below, copying contents that are not necessarily promoted out into SharePoint - form only values, and non-default attachments which are not saved out into SharePoint - would be great.
If there were a way to copy the whole form.xml part of the item, along with the attachment, that would be great. Create Item will only give us SharePoint promoted columns
i team i am not able to copy the list times from list A to list B . when the item is created in the list A at the same time workflow should run and the created items have to copy and updated in the list B .
i am minting the both list have a same data types.
Create List Items makes you select each column, and when the list has quite a number of columns it takes quite some time.
This feature : Copy List Item would really help us in a lot of Emerson business processes. We would appreciate if you could develop it and make available for Nintex Office 365 as well, as it was for the on premise.
The ability to copy an existing item + attachments would be great.
