Line break not working in approval mail with mark down

Hi, 

 

I'm designing a flow to send an approval mail with details in table. 

Here is a compose from previous step. The compose might be combined with several rows information joined by '|'

And here is the approval mail details.

But in approval mail , the \n will not act as a line break.

is there any way to break the lines for each row? 

 

Thanks!

simplest way would be to create a PDF of the table and attach it in the attachments portion.

 

I have avoided using tables in approval emails so far so unfortunately do not have a great solution.

Hi @Gristy 

 

Yes, I agree that's the way to achieve. Actually, we already have an HTML file with table attached in the approval mail. 

 

I just want to improve the user experience to view the details directly in the mail but not to open an attachment. 

 

Anyway , thank you for your information. 🙂

Does it look OK in OWA?

 

I noticed this in Outlook Desktop Client and had to add a extra line of whitespace to force a new line.

Hi @Gristy , 

 

Thanks for your quick response. It's same in OWA.

 

how can I define in the compose to have extra line of whitespace ? 

 

Thanks!

sorry i apologies i though **bleep** was also the hard coded markdown causing a issue. that is a tricky one indeed and unfortunately i do not think markdown includes a action such as \n that will help

Hi @Gristy 

 

If there is no way to add line break to the content in approval mail , is there an alternative way to display this kind of table in it? 

I thinkit should be normal case that the table will have several rows and the count of rows are dynamic.
