How can I save Task attachments to the parent List item in O365?

Good afternoon, Nintex Community! Coming to you again for some tips or guidance. I'm looking to save/move/copy attachments from a Task Item to a List Item--and a few other situations.


Use case examples:


  1. A user has a task and the opportunity to attach files. I don't want him or her to attach the file(s) to the Task Item--the file(s) will never be found again. What are my options on the O365 platform to have these saved/moved/copied to the parent List Item where they can be viewed at a later date?
  2. How about if I create a copy of a List Item with attachments in a different list? Any way to move the attachments along with the simple field values?
  3. What if I simply want to extract an attachment from a List Item and move it to a File Library?


The attachment feature is so great, but it seems on O365 that it serves a very narrow use case. I hope I'm mistaken and some of you have found solutions to these types of challenges!
