πŸ€” What Is Markdown?

Markdown is a "lightweight" language that uses tags and other symbolsβ€”this can include β€œ*” or β€œ#” charactersβ€”to determine how text should be displayed when processed by the computer. Visit The History of Markdown to learn more.

 

βš™οΈ How It Works

Taskade supports Markdown in three ways. You can use Markdown syntax to communicate with your team in chat and comments, import/export Markdown (.md) files, and take notes/save links with the Quick Add widget.

 

Here is a list of supported syntax elements:
