    I am up for a Markdown feature ๐Ÿ‘

    I believe we all love Markdown. I guess GitHub Flavoured Markdown is desirable.

    When should we expect this feature, is it planned ?

    Plus it should support @user and #wrike_task automatic linking (like GitHub)

    Please implement highlighting, this is not hard in 2019.

    Please implement an edit function for the description. Making editing directly possible costs memory and sometimes leads to a frozen view. This would also solve the problem of not having to change syntax during editing. Whereby this is really easy to solve via prism.

    Hi everyone, I wanted to let you know that Markdown is not planned at the moment; I'll get back to you if that changes.

    Having said that, we recently launched the updated Description Field, know it's possible to perform some actions without using your mouse. Please check out the article on our Help Center for more info.

    Thanks for posting!

    I write notes in markdown no matter where they are written.  For me, I'm already writing my notes in markdown on wrike, it just doesn't know how to format it.  Then to print and publish I have to copy and paste the notes to another program.  Including a markdown interpreter would be wildly useful for a number of us that are used to markdown support pretty much everywhere.

    Hi, I also would like to see this prioritized.  I use tasks for meetings, and it's very useful for the flow to be able to quickly type the meeting notes with as many keyboard shortcuts as possible, such as the "three dash" that creates a section break in markdown.  And generally we use Wrike integrated with Jira, so code snippets, for starters, are a great benefit of markdown we are missing.  Generally a lot of other tools out there have this, what I'd consider, very basic feature, so really eager for you guys to get this implemented fully!

    Hi again, everyone! I've checked with the team, and this is not planned for 2020. Thank you for the feedback, our team has reviewed all of at, but right now Markdown doesn't fit in the roadmap along with other important product releases. We really appreciate your input, and I'll be checking with the team again later to see if anything changes.

    Hello Lisa, is there an available roadmap so the community can see how is Wrike prioritizing its goals and evaluate if the path aimed at match with customer goals? Having such a roadmap would be great for customers to determine if their own teams should plane to move out of Wrike if our feature priorities diverge to drastically.

    Hi Mathieu LOVATO STUMPF GUNTZ, I'd recommend checking out this Product Feedback post about Product Roadmaps to add your support for this suggestion. This way, you will be kept posted on any changes or updates in relation to that idea.

    Thank you for your input, Ryan Hanson!
