Markdown support using CommonMark and conversion service

Usability Improvement
Added by Jan Schulz-Hofen about 1 month ago

For many years, Planio has been using the Textile syntax for all issue descriptions, wiki pages, and all other formatted content.

However, some time has passed since the first days of Planio. Meanwhile Markdown has emerged as the more common de-facto standard for formatting text and it's in the process of being defined formally as a standard. For a while now, new Planio accounts are using Markdown and both formatting languages are fully supported.

In order to make our use of Markdown even more interoperable, we've now switched our parser to CommonMark. This means that if you're used to writing Markdown at GitHub, Stack Overflow, Discourse, and many more, you will feel right at home with Planio.

With that change, we're now introducing a free Markdown conversion service. If you started using Planio before we introduced Markdown and would like all your existing Textile content be converted to Markdown, please get in touch and we will coordinate a time slot to perform the automated conversion of your data.
