How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

URL shortener for Teams

When using the "get link" option in teams it would be better to have an embedded link shortener. Pasting the link in email looks terrible.

    looks like notification of teams sent to email contains shortened url. any way to create it by user??

    Would prefer the ability to provide someone the url and meeting code over the phone so they can join online. Similar to GoToMeeting.

    The organizer could then instruct an attendee to enter a url into their browser ('microsoft.teams.com' for example), the attendee is presented with a page where they can enter the short meeting code (4382792 for example) to join the meeting.

    This would launch the web version of Teams for the user, as they may not have Teams loaded. If they have Teams loaded it could default over to their installation of Teams.

    Echoing @roger mann - CTRL + K works well enough for my liking at least.

    Yes please. Your own SharePoint requires links to be max of 255 characters. Get it together.

    This nearly makes sending links unusable. We are considering using a different platform because of this.

    This is causing issues opening the file since we get the error message "file name too long"

    OMG. I just pasted a link to a document in Teams, into our ticketing system. It takes up 5 lines for the thing. Please get on this
