Newline/Carriage Return/Linefeed Email Template Workflow Action

Looking to have a workflow email reaction contain a newline, text not html.

Email Content/Email Body:
This is
text

Get:
“This is text”

Want:
“This is
text”

I haven’t worked with email templates but, in other situations where I wanted to have a carriage return, I’ve done it like this:

First, a virtual column with a quotation mark, followed by a return, closed with a quotation mark:

Then, use that in a concatenate expression:

I don’t think you can do this with code (char(10)), as you can in Google sheets.

Did you try long text type for data type? You place strings over there and put return where you want to change the line and then place it on the workflow template.

Come to think of it, I guess my concatenate method isn’t necessary; as you wrote, the returns can be typed in with the text. If, however, one wants to insert lines as the result of if-then expressions, my method might be useful after all.
