I have text in an Outlook email that includes tables. I copy it all and paste into a JIRA issue. The formatting of the tables is lost. Is there any way to keep the original formatting?
In the end, I pasted all the text into a Google doc and linked to it from the JIRA, but this is a painful workaround.
Use JEditor - Rich Text Editor for Jira plugin/Add-On. It works well with all formatting.
Jira uses markdown syntax for table formatting. There are online tools available to convert excel/outlook tables to markdown syntax.
Of course, if your data is sensitive, this option will not work.
From this post in stack overflow, i see one of the responses talks about a plugin for outlook to convert the table into markdown syntax. I have not tried it though. But see if that helps your use case.
