Formatting Transaction Notes / Emails

SUMMARY
The message field of Paperless Pipeline’s transaction notes and emails allow you to use certain elements called Markdown that give you control over how your message is formatted.

Markdown allows you to write text in a natural way that will be converted into HTML formatted text. This article describes the Markdown elements that Pipeline supports.
