Starting Microsoft Teams conversation on items from SharePoint list

For as long as I remember, users have been asking for the ability to have conversations on SharePoint list items and documents.

And for years we have had not so good hacks to get this to work…Wiki Pages, Appending Comment Fields, Lookup Lists, SharePoint Newsfeed, Yammer, 3rd Party tools and Apps, and a ton of other kludgy solutions.

Finally Microsoft Teams comes to the scene and all of a sudden, you can have a conversation and tag a document from SharePoint or even embed the document in a conversation…Hallelujah!

But wait…What about SharePoint list items???

Well we still don’t have a simple coherent out of the box solution just yet.  However it looks like Microsoft didn’t ignore the problem.  It’ll take a little work, but a coherent solution is now here…
