Hi Everyone - I have some Guru cards with tables that when I see on Slack, the format is of the table is off. It doesn't look like a table actually. Are tables expected to be displayed properly when you look at the card on Slack?

I don't believe this will ever work properly because slack modals don't support tables 😞

I believe that in order to make this work, something really hacky would have to be done on Guru's end. Like if when the slack hook fired guru could snapshot the table in place and upload it as an image in the location of the table before rendering it in the modal. So tables aren't likely to ever display unless slack starts supporting tables in modals. We've also run into this issue.
