Add a chat message to a Dynamics 365 record
Hover over the message that you want to add as a note or task, and then select More options (…).
In the context menu, select More actions > Add to Dynamics 365.
In the Regarding field, select the record to which you want to add the message as a note or task.
In the Title field, enter a title for the note or task.
By default, the message is added as a note. If you want to add the message as a task, select Add as Task in the upper-right corner of the window. The values from the Regarding and Title fields are populated in the task accordingly.
The message is added to the description field of the note or task. Rich text format is not supported for tasks. So, if you try to add rich text messages, you'll only see the chat URL in the description for tasks. You can manually copy and paste the chat message in such cases.
The note or task is added to the timeline of the record.
By default, the note or task card is sent to the conversation. If you don't want to send the note or task card to the conversation, clear Send note card to conversation or Send task card to conversation.
The note or task is added to the record's timeline. A View Chat link is added to the note or task. Selecting the View Chat link opens the conversation in Teams.
