Hi all,

 

I've created a Sharepoint timeline using json code from GitHub. However, the HTML code appears with the description. How can I remove the code? I've attached a screenshot of the error. Thanks!

@dejaysf this is usually because the column is multiple lines of text and you've set it to rich text or enhanced rich text. Try changing it to plain text:

@RobElliott Thanks for getting back to me. Unfortunately, I don't appear to have the same options to change the text. Any ideas?

@dejaysf your screenshot was from the column formatting not the list settings. Go to list settings and change the text options for the column there.

@RobElliott That didn't work either. This is the message I receive. All the data is removed, but not deleted when I change to plain text.
