Tuesday Tips: Getting Up to Speed with Markdown

There you can use a combination of Handlebars and Markdown! Both are extremely powerful when used together. Markdown is a simple and easy-to-use markup language you can use to format text. In Markdown, you can create headers, bold or italicize text, or even create links and more:

Style Markdown
Heading ## H2
Bold **bold text**
Italic *italicized text*
Link [title](https://www.example.com)

Pro Tip: In Markdown, you can add two spaces to create a new line.

Markdown is in other places in Losant from creating Notes in the Workflow Engine to customizing Dashboard Blocks.
