Ryver User Guide (Message Formatting)

Formatting Text in Chat, Topics, & Tasks

Support Chat, General, Posts, Topics

Ryver uses a simple formatting syntax for Chat, Topics, Task descriptions, and Comments. It is a subset of Markdown, a common way of styling text on the web. It provides plain text formatting that is easy to read and write, while also supporting reliable conversion to valid HTML.

TIP: Within the Ryver app, a formatting “cheat sheet” is accessible within the Help section of the drop-down arrow menu at the top of the Navigation Bar.

Here is a guide for common text formatting options:
