Text Formats - Send Messages

(Naran M) #1


When sending messages, how do we apply format on certain text?


Webview equivalent in Web chat?

Hi Naran,

The ability to format text in messages is platform dependent as follows:

Doesn’t support any form of markdown

As shown in the telegram docs here, telegram only support limited Markdown - bold, italics, inline links and preformatted code. You can however send a message as HTML as well and the current supported tags here are < b>, < i>, < a>, < code> and < pre>. In order to use these features you would need to use a Bot > Make a Custom Request action.

Here is an example flow that shows using both markdown or HTML for bold and italics.

Slack messages may be formatted using a simple markup language similar to Markdown. Supported formatting includes: pre, code, _italic_, *bold*, and even ~strike~.

For more information on these please see the Slack documentation here.

Web Messenger
Supports _italic_ and **bold**
I hope this helps :thumbsup:

Hi Naran,

Sorry about that. I’ve editted my above message so that the methods to use the markdowns show. The community page also uses some markdown language and converted the tags automatically. :see_no_evil:
