Field Types - Multiple lines of text

Jump to solution

I'm using Nintex Workflow for O365.

I'm trying to copy items from List A to List B. However, it looks like the field type "multiple lines of text" is not supported. Standard text fields copy just fine but my list uses a few multi line fields. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Hi Jonathan,

I tried to reproduce your issue, but I cannot reproduce it.

How long is the text that you are trying to copy?

This is what I tried myself:

I succesfully copied a multi-line field while using the 'text' type

I've used the following text:

this is a rather long text, don't you think so? I really do think it is long​ - line 1

this is a rather long text, don't you think so? I really do think it is long​ - line 2

this is a rather long text, don't you think so? I really do think it is long​ - line 3

this is a rather long text, don't you think so? I really do think it is long​ - line 4

this is a rather long text, don't you think so? I really do think it is long​ - line 5

Greetings,

Robert

Just another quick tip:

You can also use the 'Create List Item' action. You don't need to specify the 'field type' for a field in that action and it's far easier to configure (no need to enter any Office 365 information)

To copy any kind of text, you can just use the Text datatype. it can contain more than 255 characters = multi line of text
