I'm working on an Employee directory; everything works fine except for one thing. I want to be able to open MS Teams chat when I click on the chat icon. I use Launch("msteams://"), and when I click on the icon (Chat Icon), MS teams open with whoever I chatted recently. I want to open the user that I search in the Employee Directory. Please see the attached. Right now, the email icon works the way I wanted to be. When I click on the "Envelope" icon, Outlook opens with whoever I search in the Employee Directory. I'm using this formula: Launch("mailto:"&First(EmployeeProfile).Mail)
I'm hoping maybe there is a formula for MS Teams that has the same behavior.

Hi @Oeskandarian ,
Ok, I thought the icon was located in the EditForm.
The correct pattern to launch Team resembles as follows:
You just need to modify the user's email to fit your scenario. It seems User's Email is shown in a Label, so try this:
Launch("msteams://teams.microsoft.com/l/chat/0/0?users=" & EmailLabel.Text)
Thanks for the reply.
Here's how I get the information for the IM label:
Under the Advanced > Test> First(EmployeeProfile).Mail
I feel like I didn't give you enough information. Please see the attached screenshots from both Textbox & Message Icon. I think the way I'm displaying the user's email address doesn't work with the suggested pattern. I can change how I get the information for the IM textBox. I appreciate your help. I have another attachment from email icon; that one works fine( when I click on the email icon, Outlook opens with the user email already filed). I was hoping If I could copied the same function, but it didn't work for Teams. your function/pattern work if I remove &EmailLabel.Text. it opens Teams but whoever I chatted last not that specific user I search in the app.
