Hi
I an afraid the problem probably is... planner does not support html tags yet
https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/planner-ama/support-for-html-codes-in-task-description/m-p/67...

As a workaround I would suggest to use Convert HTML to text action block adding the html code as its input, and inject its output as the planner task description

Hope this helps

Hi @James18 ,

 

As suggested by @efialttes , Notes in Planner does not support HTML tags.

If you want this feature supported by Planner task, please consider voting for these user voices:

As an alternative workaround, you could use HTML to text to extract data in HTML, then insert it in Notes.
