I'm using Office 365 ProPlus(16.0.12527.20988). My client will not render the markdown table in the Approval task correctly. I'm using the example table given here
| Heading 1 | Heading 2 | Heading 3 | |-----------|:-----------:|-----------:| | Cell A1 | Cell A2 | Cell A3 | | Cell B1 | Cell B2 | Cell B3<br>second line of text |
This is how it looks in desktop client:

| Title| Name|
| Mr | Clavin |
| Mr | Yash |
| Mr | Sid |
| Mr | Testing |

@fchopo are you able to use HTML in the Approval action email? when I try to put HTML in the Approval task body, it just writes it out as text.
@notj Oh OK. I know that there are some limitations.
