I have a custom action for creating hubspot tickets and today the formatting for `conversation.Transcript` has changed in the way it encodes line breaks. It used to format neatly into lines in Hubspot but now shows the `\n` character instead

Example:

The line breaks from Intercom are now escaped into `\\\\n` in the property compared to yesterday where they were only encoded as `\\n` and displayed correctly. The first instance I see of this change in these logs is at 10/17/2023 ~3:30am EST.

Hi @Bill P. !

We recently made a change to the way we handle the \n escape since it wasn’t playing well with some APIs. However, it seems that the changes we made cause issues with different APIs 😅.

A bug report has been opened up around this issue and our team is looking into a fix. I’ll reach back out here when that fix is in place!

Hi again @Bill P. !

It looks like the team has released a fix that should address the conversation.transcript formatting issue!

 

Let me know if you are still seeing any problems with this, thanks!
