How to add more readability to Multi-line text columns

Multi-line text columns are frequently used in TeamDesk online databases to keep plain text data like comments, notes or address details. You may want to outline some text elements like headings, paragraphs, lists or emphasized words to make them more readable and noticeable, and that’s what Markup can be used for. Markup allows you to insert special symbols at certain places in a text to indicate how this text should look when it is printed or displayed to a user.

In TeamDesk you can enable Markup in the multi-line text column settings.


When the markup option is activated, the “markup toolbar” appears on the “edit” form.


Some examples of markup usage are described below:


There are three predefined header options displayed in Markup toolbar: H1, H2 and H3. To format the header, simply highlight it and choose a header type, for example, press “H3” header button.

Links and Images

To convert URLs and email addresses to hyperlinks simply include them into angle brackets.

TeamDesk Markup also allows converting a text phrase to a hyperlink. Simply include [link text] in square brackets and then add a URL link included in parentheses immediately after the link text closing square bracket.
