"Markdown" Column Type and/or Show-Column Category

The AppSheet forum uses Markdown to format text.

This feature request is for a new MARKDOWN Column-Type and/or Show-Column Category.

This would take a Text-Input from a Long-Text column or any expression that evaluates to a string, such as:
CONCATENATE("**",[Column1],"**", "-", [Column2]).

…then display the text with Markdown formatting applied.


Alternatively, the existing LongText column-type could have this added as a display option.

  • Display Raw Text
  • Display in Markdown Formatting

Thanks for considering! :smiley:

I think this would really add to the UI in detail views, and it would be awesome if it worked with email templates.
