The reason I'm writing this is to start addressing a challenge that Cassy Freeman posted in response to my video stating I'll try and help any Nintex customer do more with the platform.

While this is a challenge for sure, I think I can tackle it in pieces to help everyone out and make some progress. The first thing I did was take a look at what I thought were the most common actions being used in on-premises. This is 100% my opinion so take it for what its worth, but here is the list of actions I chose starting out and some notes about them.
|On-Premise Action Name||Office 365 Action Name||Comments about the actions|
|Assign Flexi tasks||Task Action and Start a Task Process||Use one of these actions to achieve a similar result which is assigning a task to a user to complete|
|Calculate date||Add Time to Date||The basic premise of the action is the same. You can add minutes, seconds, days, months and years to the date|
|Math operation||Do Calculation||The basic premise of the action is the same. You can add, multiple, subtract or divide, or mod|
|Pause for...||Pause For Duration||This allows you to pause the workflow for a set number of days, hours, or minutes and it can abide by business hours only. You will notices that you cannot do months and years in Office 365.|
|Pause until...||Pause Until||The basic premise of the action is the same.|
|Set a condition||Conditional Branch||The basic premise of the action is the same.|
|Loop||Loop with Condition||The basic premise of the action is the same|
|End workflow||Terminate Current Workflow||The basic premise of the action is the same|
|Set field value||Update List Item||While in on-premises you update a particular field via an action, it is preferred to use the update list item and select the field or fields to update via one action in O365.|
Let me know what actions you want more info on as I start building my second list.
