Flow: Insert line break in Description field of VSTS Create Work Item Action

This is related to the Flow VSTS "Create a work item" Action.


Is there any way to insert line breaks between dynamic content fields and expressions in the Description field body?


When Flow creates the VSTS item it strips out all the returns and mushes the text together.

Hi @  phatchickin,


I have made a test on my side and couldn't work out a way to achieve your needs.

I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Microsoft Flow currently.


I would make more research on it,once I manage to achieve it I would reply here.

Try using HTML break <br/> in the description. 

@clarkbreyman, This solution worked for my similar issue. 


Line Break for the win!
