Enable clickable ProjectWise Explorer links where Bentley is not the host
This would help make Teams the best platform to use as currently using Slack to send clickable ProjectWise links
There is a new link format already available that uses https:// protocol. Such links will work in Teams and other Office 365 applications. The new links can point to a document via ProjectWise Explorer, Web, or default Teams tab. Currently the new links can be created from ProjectWise Web Connections application or via Power Automate connector for ProjectWise Design Integration. In near future it will be possible to create links of this type from ProjectWise Explorer too.

Agreed - they work in applications, just not web based applications like Outlook Web or Teams

For more background for the Teams product group. ProjectWise links come in the following format:
Unfortunately, when they are pasted into Teams chat, the link breaks within Teams.The only part of the link that is shown is the file name, and it is a "blank" click. It still shows up as a link, but clicking it does nothing.
As a workaround, code snippet works (see screenshot), but they are not clickable. These pw:\\ links work fine elsewhere in Office 365, including Outlook, Word documents, etc. It would be nice if they also worked in Teams.
