    Hi,

    In my last form I added a long text field where i summarize content of the previous fields. This is because within Asana I need the summary to add to new tasks.

    My question is how can I add line feeds to calculated fields?

    You can use "break" into the calculation field as shown below:

    That will make a "carriage return" rendering the next field's value to be on the next line.

    Hi John,

    Just added your suggestion to the calculated field but the end result still shows all in one line, although <br / > is now added as text instead of carriage return.

    Any other suggestion I could use?

    The only way to show the selected field options is using the paragraph field.

    Hi,


    Thanks for this suggestion but it seems the paragraph field cannot be used in the integrations.

    Any other options I can look into?

    I really want to add a summary of new tasks to the task created in Asana, so my staff and I know all details of the task at hand.

    This should work on a LONG TEXT field. I just tried it in a cloned form. Here's a recording of my test:

    Just type "<br/>" continuously after each line without space then press enter. After that, save the condition and make another test. 

    By the way, here's a link to the cloned form so you can also test: https://form.jotform.com/202166714019955

    Hi John,

    Thanks for the update. Finally managed to fix it and have the formatted info go to Asana tasks.
