Markdown is a text-to-HTML conversion tool for web writers. Markdown allows you to write using an easy-to-read, easy-to-write plain text format, then convert it to structurally valid HTML. Here's a complete list of the markdown syntax we use in our Markdown Blocks.
Markdown Use Cases
Pass user data into a Notification: As an example, let's say your product allows users to add comments to an article and user comments can have formatting.
The Markdown block lets you pass that data to Courier (as a variable) and insert it into the markdown
This allows Courier to render that comment across any channel.
If that comment was sent as HTML instead of Markdown, it could only be rendered in Email.
Hide a Markdown Block using conditions
It is possible to hide a Markdown Block - or any other type of block - using conditional filters. When the User Profile data matches the filter rules, the block will be hidden.
