How to Format Your Comments with Markdown

Process Street lets you format the comments you make on checklists using Markdown.

Markdown is a step further than plain text, letting you bold, italicize, link, insert images, and more in an intuitive way.

You might not know it by name, but if you’ve formatted text in Slack, Trello or iA Writer before, then you’ve used it.

How to format comments
