Is there a way to "mention" another room in Hipchat?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Chat in rooms

This would be very nice when you need to redirect a discussion to another room. E.g. a discussion is  going out of topic and you want a simple way to point to either a new room or another existing room. In Slack this is accomplished by prepending the name with a pound-sign, like #newroom. This becomes a link the users just have to click to move to the new room! Super-simple smile

Hi @Svante Gustafsson,

You can use crafted URLs to launch the web chat client directly into a room like this:

https://example.hipchat.com/chat/room/ExampleRoomName

or, for HipChat Server:

https://hipchat.example.com/chat/room/ExampleRoomName 

There is no anchor notation for the native chat clients however.

Hopefully this mess is gone in Stride.
It might already have it, (I wont even download it until they finish dark mode).
