Forcing line break on an approval description

I'm trying to put force line breaks on data that will come in like so -

1. Doe, Jack 2. Doe, Jane 3. Smith, John


And want it displayed like so -

1. Doe, Jack

2. Doe, Jane

3. Smith, John


Its pulling a response to a Form with this dynamic content code -



and I tried creating an expression with this code -
replace(body('Get_response_details')?['r3111b07f0e83403bbd2d9af9f1a54f9a'],'\n','  ')

But it does not alter the data with a linebreak and puts it in exactly as entered in the form -

1. Doe, Jack 2. Doe, Jane 3. Smith, John


My understanding was putting the 'space,space' at the end of the code it would force a line break.


Any help is greatly appreciated

Hello @ProfessionalP 


Please take a look at the information about using markdown in Approvals. Note the client support, so you know what to expect and what is suggested if a client does not support the markdown.


Hope this helps you a little 🙂

Kind regards, John
