How To Use Markdown Language To Format Text

You can use Markdown to give your reports additional formatting.

Note: Only specific fields on certain layouts can be formatted using Markdown. Contact support if you are unsure whether a field uses Markdown.

What Markdown formatting can I use?

 

  • Bold Text
    To make the text appear bold, put two asterisks before and after the text.
  • Italicized text
    To make text appear italicized, put a single asterisk before and after the text.
  • Line Breaks
    To have a line break without a paragraph, you will need to use two trailing spaces.
  • Ordered list
    Prefix each item line in the list with the relevant number, a full stop, and a space.
  • Unordered List (Bullet Points)
    Prefix each item line in the list with a hyphen and a space.
