Markdown Support

What Is Markdown?

Markdown is a "lightweight" language that uses tags and other symbols—this can include "*" or "#" characters—to determine how text should be displayed when processed by the computer.

How It Works

Taskade supports Markdown in several ways. You can use Markdown syntax to communicate with your team in chat and comments (including the AI Chat), import/export Markdown (.md) files, take notes/save links with the Quick Add widget, and format tasks, checklists, and paragraphs.

Here is a list of supported syntax elements:
