How to add text to a multi line text field separated by new line

Edited

On a automation rule, I want to add text to one of the custom fields (multi line text field) - add it in a new line in addition to the current text already stored in this field.

I already managed to append the new text to the old text (save it to variable and add it to the target field with the additional text), but I didn't find a way to add the next text in a new line.
In the example - the old and new texts are separated by ';' ,

 

Regards,

Yaron

Was very simple solution after all - add the new text in a new line right on the field update:

Hi @Deepak Rai ,

Seems that my question wasn't clear enough, I updated it with more details.

 

Thank you anyway for that as well.

Yaron

Select the custom field name and enter the value. Use the '\n' (new line character) for a line break.
