Re: Meeting notes formatting lost in Meeting capture app

Hi all,

 

The reason why your formatting is not kept by the Meeting Capture app is because the note taking control is for plain text. That being said, there is a solution currently in preview, which you all can add to your Meeting Capture apps in ~5 minutes. On the Insert > Text menu, we have a Rich Text Editor which can be substituted for the Plain Text Input control used by the Meeting Capture app today.

Before getting started, I'd recommend redownloading the Meeting Capture app to acquire the most up to date copy (as it's the one I worked with in the steps below).

 

To add this to your app:

  1. Navigate to the HomeScreen and open the HomeNotes group.
  2. Delete the NotesInput control within that group,
  3. Insert the rich text editor onto the screen.
    1. To align it's size & location with the previous input control, set it's (X, Y, Width, Height) to be (434, 220, 430, 508) respectively.
  4. Rename the rich text editor to NotesInput (same name as the previous input control), and regroup it with the controls in the HomeNotes group
    1. be sure that the HomeNotes group is in the same ordering on the tree view (to the left of the canvas) as it was previously, 
      1. You may have to go to Home > Reorder > Send backward to properly reorder
  5. Navigate to the ConfirmScreen and select it's OnVisible property
  6. On the 15th line where it says 
    {Field: "{MeetingNotes}", Data: NotesInput.Text}
    change that to say
    {Field: "{MeetingNotes}", Data: NotesInput.HtmlText}

Once all that is done, the app should be in working order with a rich text editor.

 

Let me know if you have any questions!

Hi @Jesse,

 

Did you mean that the notes are lost in the email or in OneNote? Have you tried with other marks? Please take a screenshot of the notes.

Hi Mona @v-monli-msft ,

 

Thanks for your reply. The notes come through in the email but are not formatted the same. For example, I've put a new point on each line in the app but in the email it all comes through in one line. (See attached)

 

Thanks,

Jesse

I am having the same problem with the formatting of the notes when emailed. How do we keep our bullets within the notes section when emailed?
