Hyperlinking from a web page into Teams Chat?

I am trying to ease our move from Skype (not SfB) to Teams, and one of the Skype features we use frequently within our internal apps is the ability to direct call or direct chat someone via Skype.  The code is very simple and is as follows:

Does anyone know how to do something equivalent in Teams?  As of yet I have not been able to find anything that might work.  The ideal is direct Call or Chat links, but I would live with a link which would just open the user's chat history in Teams and from there the Call or Chat could be kicked off.

 

Any suggestions would be MOST appreciated.

 

Thanks!

I think this will come default to teams but will take some time as we first we need to see some more integration.

When you look at the email alerts that you receive there is a link that will look a bit like this that gets you a to a meeting:

 

https://teams.microsoft.com/l/meetup-join/19%3ameeting_ZjkyO.........wYzkxZjM2%40thread.skype/0?cont...

 

You can also get a link to a team

This link will look like 

 

https://teams.microsoft.com/l/team/19%3a8ad....fe6f%40thread.skype/conversations?groupId=.....&tenan.......

 

The similar get link option also exists for the channels.

 

But you can't get directly into a specific location with the conversations

Thank you for your response!

 

That is all interesting information (especially the Linking to Teams option), but what I am looking for is being able to link directly to a user for the sake of a Chat or a Call.  Basically, I would like to be able to link to specific users from an employee directory or actions they have filed in transactional applications

I would probably add that to the Microsoft Teams user voice.

Looks like your idea was merged into another one

Which actually has nothing to do with it. 

Re: Hyperlinking from a web page into Teams Chat?

Thank you - that is very frustrating as I never was informed that the merged it :(

Any news on this?

Re: Hyperlinking from a web page into Teams Chat?

Teams will support the standard url schemes e.g. im: sip: tel: callto: in the same way that Skype for business did. I don't think it's finished testing yet, but keep an eye on Default Applications ... Choose default application by protocol in Windows 10.

Re: Hyperlinking from a web page into Teams Chat?

I saw there is a msteams url scheme when looking in my default applications by protocol, but am unable to initiate chat with a specified person like I can using sip. Is this, or will this, be supported?
