New formatting options for long text fields are now available to everyone! That means you’ll be able to use
ordered lists, unordered lists (bullet points), and checkboxes
bold, italic, strikethrough, and code formatting and more!
Please note that in order to use the new formatting options, you’ll need to do the following:
Open up the field customization menu
Select the “Customize field type” option
Pick the long text field type (if the field isn’t already long text)
Switch on the toggle that says “Enable rich text formatting”
Save changes (notice that the field icon changes as well)
There are a couple of interesting new use cases that these new features open up that you might not have expected (for example, did you know that you can now input formatted text in forms?), and you can read more about them in this blog post:
Thank you to every one of the beta participants for helping move this feature through to completion!
