Format Text in AppTrack Postings and Other Items

When you create a posting, title, or other item in the system, you can format your text using mark-up. For example, if you want to present a list of job duties, you can mark each list entry to display as a bulleted list item. You can also mark up URLs so that they act as links.

The HR Suite uses RedCloth's Textile mark-up language for text formatting. You can find out more about it at RedCloth's Textile website or just use this quick reference.

Textile mark-up uses punctuation marks to indicate text formatting. Because of this, using non-standard punctuation may result in unexpected text formatting.

To break text into paragraphs with spaces between them

Add p. and a space at the start of each paragraph. Separate paragraphs with blank lines.

If you type:

p. This is one paragraph.

p. This is another.


it produces this formatting:

This is one paragraph.

This is another.

To make a bulleted or numbered list

Add an asterisk * and a space at the start of a paragraph to make it a bulleted item. Add a pound sign # and a space at the start of a paragraph to make it a numbered item.

If you type* List item

* Another list item
it produces this formatting:* List item

  • Another list item
    If you type# List item

# Another list Item
it produces this formatting: # List item

  1. Another list item
    To make a list within a list:

Add two asterisks and a space or two pound signs and a space at the start of a paragraph to make it an entry in a second-level or nested list within a list. The nested list does not have to be the same kind of list - for example, you can put a bulleted list inside a numbered list, or vice-versa.

If you type # List item

# Another list item

** Nested list item

** Another nested list item
it produces this formatting:# List item

  1. Another list item
    • Nested list item
    • Another nested list item

** To make a trademark or copyright symbol:

Type (r) at the end of a word to make a registered trademark symbol:Registered Trademark(r)
produces this formatting:Registered Trademark®
Type (tm) at the end of a word to make a trademark symbol:Trademark(tm)
produces this formatting:Trademark™
Type (c) to make a copyright symbol:Copyright (c) 2011
produces this formatting:Copyright © 2011
