I need to store a 'reason for declining' in a Customized Task form.
To store the feedback I use a Workflow variable (so I can send it by email in a follow-up action).
I can only find the option to show the Workflow Variable in the Task Form as a single line text.
Is there a way to use a Multi Line Text input?

To activate it you have to add Nintex app to the site you store your workflow. Go to site settings, then "New", and choose "Nintex Form for Office 365":
After it is added open your workflow again.

then click the variable you want to be a multiline. Be sure you have the checkbox "Initiation" checked. Then click the small gear icon next to the checkbox:
On the opened form with variable settings, check the field "Multiple lines":
Now, when you drag and drop your variable onto the Nintex Form the variable is presented as a multiline field:
The same for the "Initiation form":
And since I did not want to have a 'Initiation form' just unchecking the 'Initiation' checkbox did that (whil keeping the multiline field in the Task Form.
