Concat Expression help

Hello!

 

Was wondering if someone could help me format this concat expression:

 

concat('ApproverName: ',item()?['responder']?['displayName'],' ResponseDate: ',item()?['responseDate'],' Comment: ',item()?['comments'],'</br>',variables('AllResponses'))
 
This is used to create a sharepoint list item which looks like this:
 
ApproverName: User1 ResponseDate: 2020-10-21T21:10:01Z Comment: User comments
ApproverName: User2 ResponseDate: 2020-10-21T21:09:51Z Comment: user comments
 
How would the expression look like if I want to make it look like this:
 
ApproverName: User1
ResponseDate: 2020-10-21T21:10:01Z
Comment: User comments
 
ApproverName: User2 
ResponseDate: 2020-10-21T21:09:51Z
Comment: user comments

Hi @Mailmansgotmail,

 

Instead of use </br>, you could insert a Breakline string into it, for example:

Initialize a string variable, click once "enter" keyboard button, then the expression should be:

concat('ApproverName: ',item()?['responder']?['displayName'],variables('Breakline'),'ResponseDate: ',item()?['responseDate'],variables('Breakline'),'Comment: ',item()?['comments'],variables('Breakline'))

Run result:
