Hi all,

I am looking for a way to format the description on a zap. Essentially a form gets pushed to zapier and zapier pushes it out but the text is in one line, I’m looking for something similar to the <P> in HTML. I had a look at formatter but it doesn’t look like it will do what I need, thanks!

Currently it looks like this:

Question number one Question number one answer Question number two Question number two answer Question number three Question number three answer 

Ideally I would rather have it:

Question number one

Question number one answer

Question number two

Question number two answer

Question number three

Question number three answer

Hi @moanofarc 

Good question.

Often times a custom Code step can be needed to handle and format data.

We’d need to see real data with the actual input formatting in order to determine the logic to transform it into the desired output format.
