Provide the ability to use rich text on the card description and comments fields.
It'd be useful to be able to use rich text in a cards - formatting, bullet points, etc.

Any updates on the WYSIWYG or Rich content editor? I just stumbled into Planner and love everything I am seeing. Except the lack of WYSIWYG or Rich Text editor for descriptions, notes, and comments. Being able to bold or add italics, lists, etc... would be amazing!
Nathan DeWitt commented
Markdown support would be acceptable.
Yes, please give the same WYSIWYG editor like in Teams Chat/Posts for both the Notes and the Comments. Also need to be able to post images. If using Planner for software projects, it's virtually unusable if we can't include screen captures and rich text, putting code in its own font, etc.

I would like to copy/paste a picture to the Notes and Comments of a task

Another push for Markdown support!
Use Case: I'm in a virtual meeting talking about a task and making progress. Meanwhile, I'm recording notes in OneNote. At the end, I want to be able to transfer certain notes to the Comments to share with the Team...AND retain the formatting. How useful is it to see?
a. Need to support things like ordered lists
b. URL Links
a. Need rich text as well
a. Shameless plug to reconsider adding a Gantt chart as well :)
WYSIWIG is essential! We want to Planner for tasks about updating websites, so screenshots are often needed.
This would be super handy. WYSIWYG editor would be great. Having the ability to add formatting, hyperlinks.
Even if this was similar to the markdown functionality within Teams.
You offer a web based Task Manager and the description field has no formatting and html or markdown capabilities. It´s so cumbersome to enter info in this cirppled description field as it is now.
Please improve it by being able to include html, markdown, rich-text etc. whatsoever.
Plain Text is so old school.
Markdown support plz !!!!

+1 and be able to paste images.
need to be able to paste images / screenshots into the descriptions and comments

Please integrate this... our company only allows for this tool to be used as task manager. Formatting is *essential* - I mean even Excel has it.
Come on, Microsoft...
Not having this functionality makes Planner the absolute worst planning tool available. Recipe cards and painter's tape on a whiteboard is more effective than Planner without these features.
I can't believe Planner has been around since 2016... and I can't believe they don't support text formatting!
Definitely a must have to allow us to move to Planner from Trello.

wysiwyg would be acceptable too.

Rich Text and @tad someone needed as well !
When can we excpect an update ?
This is definitely needed. Every other tool has it by default.
And, I agree with Andrew below - we also need to be able to @tag someone.
Two features that will stop me from moving to Jira;
1. Rich Text formatting in the description
2. Ability to '@' tag someone in comments
Really expecting these to already be a features, time to prioritize on your roadmap!

Any updates on this one Microsoft? This is such an easy one, but still not possible...
