How to send paragraphs and lists to Slack for a Daily Standup Bot

Describe the issue/error/question

I’m trying to create a Standup Bot like StandBot but keep it very simple in a Slack channel transparent to everyone.

How do I create Paragraphs and Lists so that the outcome looks like this:

Good morning @channel. It is time for daily standup. Ready?
What did you achieve since your last standup?

What are you working on today?

Do you have any blockers?

Hi, Slack message formatting options are described here on their website.

There is no designated list formatting, so your approach already points in the right direction.

For more advanced formatting options, you could also take a look at Slack’s blocks: Reference: Block elements | Slack. n8n has built-in support for some of their blocks, but you can also avail of all elements by providing the respective JSON structure (check out their Block Kit Builder for a visual block building tool).

These could be used in n8n like so:



Hope this helps!

Thank you so much, managed to come right. :pray:
