Send direct message (chat) to recipent instead of only posting to a Team channel

Items can be posted directly to a team channel but not to an individual person via a chat. We would like to be able to directly target individuals outside of a team.

My use case is alerting a manager that one of their reports has submitted an expense for approval. We want this notification to be targeted to only the assigned manager, and not posted in a Teams channel.

voted for this function. an private message alert is very necessary. without this, we can only do so by sending an email or else the channel will be in a mess.

I'm really looking forward to this.
As there is a function to do this already with Skype and Skype will be integrated into Teams (accoding to MS), I hope it won't take to long. 
What I'm trying to do is replying to an email with a Teams personal chat, so everyone is reminded that I don't want emails 🙂
