Best Way to Display large amounts of text

  • 1.  Best Way to Display large amounts of text

    Hi All, 

    Trying to figure out the best way in a form to display a large amount of formatted text. We need a field to display the body of an email message. The body of the email message is extracted by Blue Prism and then added to a field within a form (Raise submission with field values populated). Right now I am using the text field but the email body does not come our cleanly and only shows one line of data. What data type is best to show multiple lines of formatted data in form for a user to review.

    Hi Marshall

    The new Text Area feature in the next release (v4.4) will be a great way for you to display this information. In the meantime, could you upload it as a file and have the user download it? It might be cleaner than using a single or multiple text fields to display this information.
