🤔 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. Visit The History of Markdown to learn more.


⚙️ 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:

Markdown Feature How it looks Remarks
Bold image **bold**
Italic image _italic_
Underline image Double underline __test__
Block quote image > block quote
Strikethrough image ~~hi~~
Inline code image ```inline code```
Code block imageimage ```code
Workspace links image

⌨️ Formatting Nodes with Markdown

Add the following characters followed by a space at the beginning of a task/node to format it:

  1. [] to convert a node into Check 1 check-1.png
  2. # to convert a node into H1 h1.png
  3. ## to convert a node into H2 h2.png
  4. - to convert a node into Bullet 1 bullet-1.png
