How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Custom URI handlers

Hyperlinks with non-http or non-https prefixes do not currently work such as M-Files URLs that begin with m-files://

Please allow at least admins enable these custom URI handlers in Teams. They work perfectly in Slack :)

    Out ticket system fat client offers access to tickets by a custom uri handler. Would be very useful. I prefer to manage a whitelist of uris as admin.

    support for Notes:// URLs for IBM Notes/Domino would be highly beneficial in my organisation - would enable us to ditch Sametime!

    Currently keeping two windows open for the same contact (Skype + Teams) after this went from 1 to 5+ contacts I just stopped using Teams. Please guys, we need this.

    When are we getting this? The only thing that keeps me using Skype is this feature! Please support this

    Having already gone through the trouble of getting URI scheme support re-enabled in Skype for Business it is ludicrous to have the same fight on our hands again with MS.

    Surely no-spam policy doesn't make sense to block custom handlers. Most problems would be with HTTP/HTTPS links anyway.

    +1. MSFT emphasizes security and no-spam policy in Teams, but allowing admins to opt into custom URI schemes would be really helpful for custom integrations.

    Seconded. We have a URI scheme for internal applications and it doesn't show up as a hyperlink at all in Teams.

    Also links created with onenote: URI scheme don't work unless created inside Teams.
    mailto: uri work as expected, opening outlook.
    callto: URI are changed to http://callto: - breaking skype action
