Configure deep links
Deep links function as URLs that direct users straight to specific content within an app thereby eliminating the need to navigate through several screens. In Microsoft Teams, you can use deep links to go to a specific chat, message, or tab within an app. You can also use deep links to initiate a new chat or call and share content during a meeting.
You can use deep links in Teams in the following ways:
Deep link to an app.
Deep link to a chat.
Deep link to a workflow.
Deep link to an app: Use a deep link to browse through the contents within a tab and open an app install dialog. For example, your app can have a bot that sends messages notifying the user of an important activity. When the user selects the notification, the deep link navigates to the tab where the user can view more details about the activity.

Deep link to a chat: Use a deep link to navigate to a channel conversation, chat messages, or a file within a channel.

Deep link to a workflow: Use a deep link to create a new chat, open a scheduling dialog, or navigate to an audio-video call. App users can benefit from an improved app experience by utilizing simplified or automated user tasks. These tasks include initiating a new chat or scheduling a meeting, which are made easier by prepopulating the deep links with necessary parameters.
