Hi all,

I’m trying to make it easier for my teammates to create records, and would love it if I could format the text in a formula field so that its items separated by a comma are displayed in vertical list format. This is the formula I’m using right now, trimmed so no one has to wade through ALL the categories and tags:

IF(Category=“Community”,“Art & Music, Books & Literacy, Children & Youth, Community Development, Education, Guns & #NeverAgain, Inclusive Language”)

I’d like everything within the second set of quotation marks to display in list format. Is this possible?

Try replacing all of the commas in that list with \n – that may work for you

Wow! Perfect! Thank you! I never would have guessed that. :astonished:

Most text entry on the internet will interpret \n as a “newline” character, and replace it with a line-break when it is processed by the server.
