Having multiple paragraphs in one cell for Approval Request

I'm trying to use Approval Requests for something and some of the columns are analysis's and are written in paragraph form. This is a formal process and I want it to look as professional as possible. Even though in smartsheet I can use Ctrl+Enter to add a space and create a new paragraph within as cell, when it is sent in the approval request it shows up as one very long paragraph.

Is there any way to retain multiple paragrahs in one cell for approval requests? (the same thing happens with update requests)

    Hi Julia,

    Have you tried adding something between the paragraphs?

    Can you maybe share some screenshots? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too, andree@getdone.se)

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!
