I just started using Nintex workflows and I am trying to figure out if there is a way to set the value of a column to today's date when a certain condition is met.
You should be able to set the column to Workflow Context, then choose Current Date. Or in a references screen, under the Common tab, you can find Current Date and Current Time
Andrew's answer is correct Joseph!
Question about Workflow Context Current Date. Does the "Current Date" always equal Today? When and how does the Workflow Context "Current Date" get updated?
It takes the context at the time it is used. For example, if I do the Current Date and Current Time now in a log to history list as a site workflow, it will be 2/17/15 at 12:50pm. If I then pause for 12 hours, then log to history list the Current Date and Current Time it will post 2/18/15 at 12:50ish AM
