Teams Task Dialogs - page displays OK, embedded link problem

Brass Contributor

Hello All,

 

We have an application that renders FAQs into a Teams task dialog.  The initial rendering works fine.  In many cases, the FAQs reference other content (i.e. see also).  

 

However, if the FAQ includes additional links, then when the users clicks on these additional links, the task dialog displays a blank page.

 

Is this by design (i.e. can't follow links in task dialog)?

Thanks

Peyton

We have been able to resolve the issue on our side. In some cases, the links were 'external' and not part of the trusted domain (i.e. not included in the manifest). In this case, we are adding a _blank to the external URL in order to launch the link outside of the task dialog.

For other links (i.e. other internal links), we are making some changes to carry enough some authentication info for any linked pages.
