[Status: Not planned] Markdown formatting in Description field

It would be incredibly helpful if we could use Markdown in description fields.

e.g. instead of having to use the mouse to choose the header level, simply type ## at the beginning of the line for a level 2 header etc.

Dropbox Paper is a good example of this working well. Markdown is enough of a standard for this to be worthwhile. 

I really like using Wrike as a note taking tool (for meetings etc) but the mouse-based formatting makes it rather slow.

Thanks.

This is important.  Markdown features are needed.  Please consider adding these features.  Thank you.

Four years has passed and still don't have support for markdown in the description field? 😐

Let's keep this ticking over Christian Predebon and others.

Have each of you on this thread done at least the following?:

  1. Asked colleagues who use Wrike to upvote the feature request and add a comment. And do so yourself if you haven't already.
  2. Reached out to your Wrike support manager. Meet with them. Ask why this feature still has the status NOT PLANNED. They probably don't understand how pervasive text markup languages like markdown have become. Make them understand.

Also, it's time we started a user group I think. If any of you think the same, feel free to reach out to me at: simon@unisolve.com.au
