How to open Missive conversation links in the desktop app?

Missive supports opening links directly in the app by using missive:// links instead of https://.

You can press Alt (Windows) or Option (Mac) on your keyboard before clicking Copy link in order to copy the missive:// link, as shown here:

This is the best option if you share these links in an app that will make missive:// links clickable, like Slack and Todoist.

However, some apps don’t recognize missive:// links and won’t make them clickable, which isn’t very friendly.

The solution to this is to use https:// and install a browser extension that automatically catches links and redirects to the desktop app. We recommend Redirector for Chrome or Redirector for Firefox. It lets you configure custom rules, so you can redirect* to missive://$1 as shown here:
