Allow sharing a URL to a specific thread/message
It would be really useful to be able to get a URL or share a URL which points to a specific message or a thread in a channel. For example, I wanted to point my colleagues to a specific thread which was discussed two days ago and the only way I found possible doing it today is to tag them in that conversation.
Please fix the copy link button in threads, it behave like the rest of teams. It generate HTML with embedded URL. An URL only option works better most of the times.
This is important because currently we have no means to refer threads or messages inside Teams. If it's available we can navigate other users to desired threads or messages. On the other hand, we also want to keep threads/messages URL in other apps to keep discussion or decision making history for further references. In our case, I'd like to write their URL on our issue tracking system.

Be able to get a link to a conversation or comment so it can be put into an email, text, other chat program. The receiver would be able to click the URL to bring up that conversation or comment in the Teams app.
There's a hacky workaround for it:
- open teams website
- bookmark a message
- go to your bookmarks
- click on the bookmarked conversation
- now you have URL in your address bar pointing to that message
Yes , yes
Have a share button , please standard on all other Office apps
Need very often to share information, remind people there is conversation in Microsoft Teams or reference information in meeting requests outside Microsoft teams

Two related suggestions:
1. Be able to reference another channel or tab
2. Be able to reference a long external URL (on the internet) by embedding a hyperling into a short text.
