I’m new-ish to Nintex in general, but having to learn some things over again in Nintex Cloud.

In order to save the content of the Text - Long control in the task form to a SharePoint online column, you would need to use the “SharePoint Online - Update items” action in your workflow.

@bamaeric I’ve added this step to the workflow, but still unsure how to pass text from the comment field on the task form into the item in the SharePoint list. I’ve looked everywhere for documentation, videos, etc. on this topic and have found nothing with examples.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
