Markdown format

Create sophisticated formatting with markdown in your Slack notifications and outputs.

On Slack requests that sends or updates a message and on markdown outputs, you can add styling with markdown elements.

List of Actioner markdown elements


To create paragraphs, use a blank line to separate one or more lines of text.

Line breaks

To create a line break or new line, end a line with two or more spaces, and then type return.


To create a heading, add one to six # symbols before your heading text. The number of # you use will determine the size of the heading.

Note that Slack markdown does not support headings. If you added a heading, it will be shown bold in Slack.

# The largest heading
## The second largest heading
### The third largest heading
### The forth largest heading
### The fifth largest heading
###### The smallest heading

Styling text

You can indicate emphasis with bold, italic, or strikethrough text in markdown fields.

**This is bold text**
*This text is italicized*
‍~~This was mistaken text~~

Inline code blocks that are a single word or line: wrap your text with a single backtick (`).

`var example = 0;`
