Adding tabular contents to a Paragraph field

Hello all,

We have an interface in which users can add and format text. We use this interface as a start form and this data is sent as an email using the send email smart service.  

Also,users should be able to copy tabular content as a part of requirement into this paragraph field. However, once user tries to paste a tabular data Appian automatically converts it into text format as shown below.

After pasting the above content it transforms to:

Does anyone has any clue how I can retain the original table when i copy the tabular data into paragraph field/any rich text field? Thanks

  • At the end of the day, anything you paste into an Appian text or paragraph field will work basically the same way that it would if you pasted it into a text editor -- Appian has no special way to make any sense out of table data in this sense.  I think the closest you could come is to create an editable grid where a user fills in the data across the individual cells.
