Real Markdown Support

So there was a very popular feature request asking for markdown support to be added which has now ben marked as implemented, and then later acnowledged that it hasn’t in fact been implemented, and it was just some shortcuts for asanas markdown variant - which was not what that feature request was asking for.

So to clarify:

Markdown support. This means being able to dump in an entire markdown document if someone really wanted to, and it be formatted using standard markdown (e.g common mark spec).

Adding support for bold, italic, link and lists in a similar but not quite the same way as standard markdown was not markdown support, it was just a step in that direction.

Markdown support should include:

  • Full support for h1 - h5 tags using the hashtag
  • Blockquotes
  • Code tags (with support for language specification)
  • Thematic breakes
  • Tables
  • plus all the standard, widely used items on the spec linked above

Please do not call what you have implemented so far Markdown - it is not.

Also just to add. If you work at Asana and don’t really get the problem, go and read the responses to the announcement that you’d added markdown last time - they were not good.

Hi @Rick3543, welcome to the Asana Community Forum!

Thanks for taking the time to provide this feedback! As mentioned by Marie on the Markdown announcement post, we have a lot more exciting updates on the way, including headers, inline code, multi-line code, quote blocks and more… but these require a little more work on our end.

I’ll keep you posted here as soon as I have some updates :slight_smile:
