Add More Options >> "Copy link" menu selection to Chat messages.
Add More options >> Copy link (i.e."... >> Copy link") to chat messages. This already exists for messages in a channel and it is very useful. It seems like a bug in the specification that this was not done for Chat messages (I've confirmed the link doesn't work for those without access, so it't not a security issue).
Use Case: I often create an Outlook task for a post in a channel or chat. I do that instead of just using Save for numerous reasons; I may want to set a due date, create rich text concerning the task, set a reminder.
This is drop dead simple for channel messages but I have to jump through hoops to do this for a chat message:
- Save message.
- Open Teams in a browser.
- Go to Saved messages.
- Click the saved message, copy the resultant URL from my browser (I now have a URL to the message).

Ditto to what Roy said!!! Thanks, Roy for the workaround solution until this feature is added (hopefully).
