Approval flow with table

I have a SharePoint list and I created an approval flow incorportated to it. The approval flow is working. However, I want to add a table that contains the fields and data in the SharePoint list by using the syntax below:

 

| Heading 1 | Heading 2 | Heading 3 |

|-----------|:-----------:|-----------:|

| Cell A1 | Cell A2 | Cell A3 |

| Cell B1 | Cell B2 | Cell B3<br/>second line of text |

 

However this is not working.

 

Ihave attached the screenshot of the flow details and the email received in the approval flow.

 

Thanks

Re: Approval flow with table

Hi @almendoza26 ,

 

Could you tell me where you reviewed Approval email?

I did a test on my side, both Start and wait for an approval action or Start and wait for an approval action (V2) action, the markdown can be displayed in the email.

Like:

For reference, I checked the email at outlook.office.com. The browser used is Microsoft Edge. The same test can be done on Outlook client.

 

Please provide more details.

Hi Barry,

 

I did not checked using webmail but upon doing so, I can see that it works as intended in webmail. But it is the same problem for Outlook client.

 

Is there an addin needs to be installed for it to work?

 

Regards,

Albert

Hi @v-bacao-msft,

 

Heres the screenshots of my view, in Webmail and in Outlook client:

 

Webmail shows markdown as intended:

Outlook client not showing markdown:

Then, I have noticed that if I click the Show Orginal message in Outlook the markdown shows as intended but not in the view of Approvals | powered by Microsoft Flow:Outlook client Original message.jpgOutlook client Show Original Message

Hi, @almendoza26 ,

 

Could you tell me the version of the Outlook client you are using?

The effect displayed on my side is as follows, the effect of the markdown configuration can be displayed, but it cannot be approved directly on the outlook client:

The version I am currently using shown below:

I just found similar conversation with the same issue with MS Flow Markdown, see conversations below:

Since we are promoting flow with in our organization we need this feature to work for us.
