    I'm using the integration with Asana. I want to take three of the fields and insert them into a new field called Task Notes. That's pretty straight forward, but what I want to do is have a new line after each of the field values.

    I can get all three fields into Task Notes without a problem. I don't seem to be able get a new line created after each field. Is there a way to do so?

    If I understand correctly, what you wanted to do is to have the Task notes in separate line instead of them being on one line only.

    Example:

    You wanted the Task note result which is one liner

    to appear like this instead.

    Can you please clarify first if this is what you meant by "get new line created" after each field in Asana.

    We will wait for your updated response.

    Yes, that's correct. I would like to have the lines look like you have indicated.

    Unfortunately it doesn't appear to be possible to automate formatted text in Asana Task Comment field using Jotform Asana integration only.

    Although I was able to generate the formatted text (new line delimited) in the form field, it does not transform automatically in Asana task comment field.

    You can see on the screenshot image below that I was able to make the field added on new line on the Rich Text formatted TextArea field...

     but the value pass on to Asana task comment did not reflect the same format.

    It seems the only way you can format the Asana task comment is by manually editing the comment text.

    I hope this help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
