Markdown Table from Flow Approval Email not rendering in Outlook O365 Desktop Client

I am attempting to use a Markdown Table from a Flow Approval email, but am not having any luck getting it to render in Outlook O365 desktop client (it works fine in Outlook web client). 


My email is being defined in the Flow Approval action as follows:




When it renders in Outlook O365 Desktop Client, it renders as follows:Flow2.jpg



























The exact same email, when rendered in Outlook web client renders the table correctly:Flow3.jpg


























If I expand the 'Show original message' toggle in the Outlook O365 desktop client, then I can see the table renders correctly in the original message in O365 desktop client, just not in the adaptive card render.
























My current version of Outlook O365 desktop client is Version 1812 (Build 11126.20266 Click-to-Run)



Hi All,


I am facing a similar issue. My Approval flow isn't rendering the HTML table in the email. In my case, I am not using a markdown to create a table but using a Create HTML table action in Power automate.


Is there any resolution to the issue?




Hello All.


I found out that only Markdown tables are supported to render for the Approval flows. In the question above, I was trying to render an HTML table which seems to be unsupported.


Thanks !

I experience the same thing.
Works fine in a browser, but does not work in Desktop Outlook (16.0.13328.20334)
Is there anything news regarding this?
