How to format the table as Rich text in send an email body action listing all tasks assigned to user

Hi,

 

I have a flow setup that sends an email to notify users about tasks assigned to them with start date, end date and task status info. I am leveraging create html table action and using output of it in send email action. I used solution provided here to build an exact replica: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/General-Flow-Discussion/microsoft-flow-get-all-items-with-distin...

 

Based on solution provided here: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/General-Flow-Discussion/Create-HTML-and-formatting-the-table-as-..., I was able to make font changes but I want to make more formatting changes.

 

Below is the send an email action from flow.

After spending some time in research I was able to convert the output into a tabular format with the help Kamil's comment here: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Flow-Ideas/Formatting-Create-HTML-Table-Action-with-HTML/idc-p/2...

 

As mentioned by Kamil on above link, right below create html table, I simply added a compose action with following formula: replace(body('Create_HTML_table'),'<table>','<table border="1">') it does the job. See below screenshot for flow and email notification.
