Skype Message through Powerapps

Apologies if this is not in the right area.

I would like to be able to click a button on someones profile in powerapps and then that would open up Skype and open up a skype message to that person but I cant seem to get it to work.

I have the following bit of code.

Launch("IM:" & Subtitle1_3.Text) 

The Subtitle1_3.Text is the persons name. but when I click on the button it opens up Skype and errors

SKype.JPGError

 

Any ideas?

Thanks 
Jonny

Re: Skype Message through Powerapps

Hi @Stexsta18 ,

 

Currently you can send an instant message with Skype for Business Online connector, or launch the Skype for Business app using Launch function. But I think it is not avaiable to open a new chat with dedicated person in Skype for Business app on select of a button. Try to submit an idea in below forum if you need this:
