Importing from Slack, Hipchat, Flowdock, Basecamp, etc.
We are using Slack for a long time and now we are thinking to transition to MS Teams. In Slack it is possible to export all channel content's in JSON with links to files uploaded to slack.
It could be very useful to have the ability to import the slack history into MS teams.
Thank you for your continued feedback. We are currently working on this, and recently announced this feature for developers in Beta. For more information, please visit https://developer.microsoft.com/microsoft-teams/blogs/importing-3rd-party-platform-messages-to-microsoft-teams-is-now-available-in-beta/.
Yeah, pls do it
Would be greatly appreciated!

Being able to migrate Basecamp data to Teams would make it a lot easier to get rid of our Basecamp subscription!

Please do this! Seems like it should have been done a long time ago since history is so important to Slack/Teams/Hipchat, etc.
Hello, this article is confusing. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/migrate-slack-to-teams It provides instruction but not clear. It just says copy the file to Teams but how does it copy it, it does not tell. This is misleading to your customers. Do not post out documents that are actually yet to be developed.

A tool to migrate data from Basecamp to Teams would be greatly appreciated! Currently my team has to use both systems. We really want to consolidate into Teams as that is the system that our organization has adopted. Ideally we'd like a tool that gives us the ability to turn Basecamp projects into a Teams team. The highest priority data coming from Basecamp would be the message board. It would be wonderful if to dos could turn into Planner tasks, and if documents and chats (campfires and pings) could be migrated as well. Our team would be happy to be a resources as your team pursues this capability.

If this lands, the only real barrier to adoption for me is the ability to switch identities quickly and cleanly.
Not needed. If you really want to preserve your past chats, save them and archive them inside a file in Teams.

this should be an option in mover.io :)

Don't swap, you won't like it
teams feels like its way behind in actual use, it tempts with practical integrations without any real value, they just sound nice
in practice you end up using a lot more time to solve the same tasks or to communicate the same information, its simply not efficient in use
I suspect many people that started with teams will move to slack if they ever get their chance to try it out.
As others have pointed out, the best bet is to stay with slack.

This is a must for capturing the customers looking for more reasons to move off of a fragmented setup like GSuite, Slack, Dropbox, and consolidating down to Microsoft 365. We need more migration tools (or more APIs to build our own)
finding difficult time to migrate history form Slack to teams without any tools. if Microsoft provide tool it will be helpful.

Guys, please confirm if Microsoft is working on it.
use AvePoint's FLY.
Lots of Office 365 Users would greatly benefit if a feature like this would be available so we can migrate to Teams from other messaging platform.
Being able to transfer chat history from Slack to MS Teams would be great. My team is not willing to move platforms without the history.
Slack to Teams, please. This will gain you more customer!
Any new Updates???
