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:

or, for HipChat Server: 

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