Howto: Add links to an event description (multiline text)

Hello everyone,


I am trying to insert http links into the description field of an event in a SharePoint calender list using Nintex Workflow for SharePoint 2013. The workflow runs on the list, not the site.

But when I set the description field using the "update field action", all the formatting goes out of the window. Even line breaks get lost.

How do I retrieve the content of a multi line text field of a SharePoint list without breaking the existing format? (rich text?!?)

How do I add content to a rich-text enabled field while keeping the format?

Is it even possible to add a clickable link? ( ... It is using the SharePoint frontend.)


Any ideas or input is welcome! I am really stuck right now.
