A "Copy List Item" action that returns the new item ID
This suggestion connects to several others already posted related to copying list items.
The "Create List item" workflow action returns the new list item ID, but "Copy List item" doesn't. This causes problems if you then need to access the newly-created item, e.g. to set the name or other attributes.
This requirement could easily be merged into other enhancements requested here like-
Really good idea ...I need this too
Come on Nintex.... 4 years later and still no ID returned on Copy List Item. And this while you Copy List Item may reuse Create List Item functionality and as such the ID most likely is already available but not yet set as output variable....
I need this now too.

Must have since many years - no solution in view?
I would be nice to have a some type of data form to send the use to update list item

Indeed this is a must have - what use is copy if I cannot do some post-processing on the newly created item?

Agree, this is a huge miss with Nintex.
This would be nice. Currently when I use copy.asmx, I set the Destination URL and use that in a variable to update the item accordingly. Definitely a little kludgy.

Good idea... Came across this the other day...
PLUS, the Copy Item Item, really needs the option to copy ALL versions, and/or all version notes... Currently note fields with append to text are ignored.
