Respected Contributor

I send messages from the Office Message Center to Planner and assign them to people. When I populate the Task Description field, the HTML codes are visible. When will that text field start supporting HTML?

Hey @Dean Gross - thanks for the question. Are you copying and pasting HTML from a web page? Or looking to support things like images or hyperlinks?

In this case, i'm populating the Description field via a PowerShell script and it includes anchor tags to URLs that should be clickable. However the codes just show up within their <>

Copy/pasting the same text causes the tags to get stripped out by Planner

@Dean Gross Gotcha - that makes a lot of sense. Thanks for sharing this suggestion! I'll be sure to share it with the team.
