Note

The reports that are querying notes, may display in HTML-formatted text instead of plain text. This is because the rich-text editor is enabled by default. To workaround this issue, do one of the following:

  • Disable the rich-text editor, for more information see, Enable or disable rich-text editor for notes in timeline. When you disable the rich-text editor, new notes that are created will not the have the HTML tags. The existing notes that were created when the rich-text editor was enabled will still show in HTML-formatted text.
  • Update the report definition to support formatted text. For more information, see Importing HTML into a Report.
