Alerts & Report format in Mail body

We have implemented summary report in Metabase with Alert every Monday Morning to specific set of people.

Everything works fine, we also get attached report format in excel file.

As summary report is having lot of columns (with 2 rows) in it, because of this format doesn't looks good in mail body.

Is there anything we can have it to solve this ?
We have already asked client to open excel and look at the data, as report goes to management, save & then open file is not the option they want to go for.

@manish.joisar Some email clients handles wrapping differently, which can cause some issues like: - upvote by clicking :+1: on the first post

Thanks Flamber for your reply.

Any workaround or temp solution?

@manish.joisar I don't think so, since it's difficult to know the quirks of all email clients. Open the attachments instead.
