Markdown formatting error in Approvals.

Hello,

 

I have been using a Flow with an Approval Markdown table inside. For a few days now, the table does not get formatted in the right way when opening it within the outlook desktop app (it seems that the system is trying to create a list out of it). On my mobile device it shows up nicely formatted. I haven't changed the Flow, the bug just appeared. The bug also occurs when copying the markdown template from the official MS documentation.

 

Any way how to fix that? Thanks!

 

Best regards,

Re: Markdown formatting error in Approvals.

Hello kk4,

Could you share any shortcuts on mentioned 'the table does not get formatted in the right way when opening it within the outlook desktop app (it seems that the system is trying to create a list out of it)'. Is it like table format broken?
If this format issue is only happen in desktop app (latest version) with detail view(double click to open the mail), while OWA and preview in desktop app is working fine. Then this would one confirmed known issue which occurred after July 7th.
Currently Dev Team are working on making this code case agnostics but it will reach by next week’s Tuesday (21st July) PST to WW at earliest.

Hope above would help.

Best Regards,
Johnny

Re: Markdown formatting error in Approvals.

Hi Johnny,

 

thanks a lot for your answer!

 

The bug looks like this:

This was the result from just creating a simple test Flow using this structure (copy-paste from official MS documentation):

kk4_1-1594620496410.png

 

It occurs when double-clicking on the email, and also by single-clicking on it so it shows up on the right side next to the side bar. Not shure what the differences between the views you mentioned are 🙂

 

Thanks again, I hope the pictures help!

 

Best regards,

kk4
