Markdown is a simple way to add formatting to text. In SquadPod, markdown is available for messages within pods, so you can use it to format your pod posts, comments, and replies. You can also use it when editing your messages in a pod.
Add markdown to your pod messages
You can add formatting using markdown in two ways:
- You can utilize the toolbar to add formatting to your message. Just highlight the text you want to format and select the appropriate icon in the toolbar. These icons are provided in the "Icon" column in the table below. As an example, if you want to bold text, highlight the text and click the icon in the toolbar.
- You can also add markdown without using the toolbar by typing specific characters on your keyboard to format the text. These characters are provided in the "Action" column in the table below. As an example, you can make your text bold by typing two asterisks before and two asterisks after your text, like this: **Bold**.
When markdown is used to format text, the intended formatting changes will appear after the message is sent. So if you are bolding text, the text will appear as **Bold** before you send the message and will appear as Bold after you send the message.
Available markdown actions in SquadPod
The examples provided in this table demonstrate what the text will look like when you utilize each icon or action.
