Advice on writing HTML in email and approvals using the </>

Hi,

 

I'm experiencing difficulty in writing html in the 'create an approval' and 'send an email' actions.

 

When I try and insert dynamic data into the html code it becomes garbled and difficult to manipulate- in particular trying to write an <a href='URL'>Link name</a?> tag.

 

Is there some documentation anyone can recommend on how to work with this experience in a more efficient manner?

 

Thank you.

 

Regards,

 

Daniel

Hi @manuelstgomes ,

 

This is great! Thank you.

 

So I shouldn't use the </> button and work with HTML but rather work with mark down?
