MS Flow Markdown Table Format

Hi, I have created an approval flow where I send the below data in markdown table in 'start and wait for an approval' action.

The table format is disturbed. How can I give certain width to the column to make it look better?

Hi @PriyaFernandes,

 

GFM Markdown table syntax is quite simple. It does not allow row or cell spanning as well as putting multi-line text in a cell. The first row is always the header followed by an extra line with dashes "-" and optional colons ":" for forcing column alignment.

| Tables   |      Are      |  Cool |
|----------|:-------------:|------:|
| col 1 is |  left-aligned | $1600 |
| col 2 is |    centered   |   $12 |
| col 3 is | right-aligned |    $1 |
