Move a project (channel) from one team to another
We would like to move a project (channel) between groups to keep the information.
This continues to be on our backlog due to prioritization of other work items. We will update when there is more to share.

Surprised that this expectedly basic functionality wasn't part of the product from day one.
Claudia Marguin commented
Why isn't this up yet!

Microsoft. The silence is now deafening. This should have been done years ago.
Would be such a helpful addition to Teams allowing the users to recreate structures of teams and channels.
James McKevit commented
What a joke. Five years and counting. Basic functionality that every competitor has had since launch. Top voted feature since launch. Microsoft just DOES NOT GAF about its users. Period. Everyone on the Teams team should be embarrassed as all ****.
Effi Shen commented
im seriously considering moving away from Teams just because this feature is missing.
this is how badly i need it. the wasted manhours in shifting the data manually is not worth the effort
Patrick McClain commented
Please make this feature available!! The last update shows February 2020 - do you have any updates?

It's been almost two years since the last admin response. Come on guys, this is a serious requirement in a business environment. Lets move this up the priority list. The initial request here was 5 years ago, and the last response from an admin was almost 2 years ago. This is a feature that you'd expect to be included from day 1. We need to move channels as the business needs change.

Please add. This will allow better management flexibility of all Teams
Jacob Willig commented
Please, please add this.
Teams is a collaborative tool/platform. The organization teams also evolve and moving channels around is becoming more and more important when organizations mature and of course by that time, the MSTeams channels will have a lot of valuable items that cannot be just left behind.
Please upvote this requirement - not as an nice to have but as a MUST have feature.

Essential feature that we need. Pleas upvote!
Michael Theis commented
Upvote. We need it
Still need this feature :)
I found a third party solution that lets us move a channel from one team to another. Check them out https://agatsoftware.com/microsoft-teams-channel-management/
I do hope this gets prioritized soon, this function is a rather obvious necessity imho that should have been built in from the beginning and ought to be fixed asap
Since we now have private channels, there is a great need to migrate (hastily created) ad hoc Teams into private channels.

It is very important to be able to change a channel from one Team to another. That is something that happens in teams in the real world (a particular task changing from one team to another) so it should be possible to do so also in Microsoft Teams. It would also be very useful to copy a channel from one Team to another Team. When in a company there is task and process that are usually repeated in different Teams, this could be a real improvement. We would be able to create a sort of channel templates inside a Team that could be copied to other Teams.

Teams change - Time move - Projects move
=> We need this feature
this is a feature that should have been deployed a year ago
