How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

hyperlinking to a chat user

(NOTE - This is the second time I am posting this as the last time it was inappropriately merged into https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/17137732-hyperlink-any-text-in-chat which has nothing to do with this request. It is a little frustrating that I can't even get to my original post in order to copy and paste - I need to recreate it from scratch.)

It would be very helpful to have the ability to hyperlink INTO a chat with a given user. We relied on this heavily while using Skype and it is a very nice feature to be able to embed into other internal applications.

E.g. in Skype we could use:
<a href="skype:myuser?call">Call User</a>
<a href="skype:myuser?chat">Chat with User</a>

Could we please allow for the same linking INTO Teams from 3rd party applications?
