    Well there are a few solutions to this. But if you want all the control I would do a Manual Parse. You can add "IF" statements to control the colors or if you just want it to be in a pretty order then you can do that too.

    Manual Parse (10 Item List)

    var text Items = ToText([Workstream]);


    "<span style='color:red'>&#149; </span>"&Part($Items,1,";"),

    "<span style='color:orange'>&#149; </span>"&Part($Items,2,";"),

    "<span style='color:yellow'>&#149; </span>"&Part($Items,3,";"),

    "<span style='color:green'>&#149; </span>"&Part($Items,4,";"),

    "<span style='color:blue'>&#149; </span>"&Part($Items,5,";"),

    "<span style='color:purple'>&#149; </span>"&Part($Items,6,";"),

    "<span style='color:red'>&#149; </span>"&Part($Items,7,";"),

    "<span style='color:orange'>&#149; </span>"&Part($Items,8,";"),

    "<span style='color:yellow'>&#149; </span>"&Part($Items,9,";"),

    "<span style='color:green'>&#149; </span>"&Part($Items,10,";"))

    Hi Bhargavi, thanks for posting your question here. Doesn't look like anyone from the Community has answered this question yet so let me see if I can find an answer for you.

  • Unfortunately, you're not going to be able to use the UL and LI tags without also using some additional styling for the list like "list-style-image" for this. This is still not exactly what you're asking for (since it would mean one image for the whole list), so you'd probably have to do something like what Meridith showed. Her's is probably going to be the easiest if you always have a set number of options, but there are really a lot of different ways to approach this.
