Backup, export, printing, archive options
Can Teams chat and activities data be exported, printed, archived, and backed up/restored? Within Sharepoint or elsewhere? This could be necessary for a few reasons both during projects and for historical records.
This item is still under review. No new updates at this time.
Another vote for just a simple "Save Conversation to Text File".
Alternately, a way to copy specific messages to the clipboard without all the other formatting stuff coming along; just timestamp, name, message.
This feature is all we need to start using teams company wide. Please include otherwise we're going to Slack. Thanks.
Highly expected feature. When team goes from Skype to Team you really start suffering without this feature.
Another use case is being able to get specific team discussions into various customer-facing systems e.g. customer support, project management etc.
Hi @Warren, this function would be useful to our organization. Christmas is right around the corner...
If I open a channel for a project and a project is finalised archiving it together with the documents would be a good idea to refer to the conversations held.
It's hard to believe Teams was developed without taking into consideration Tenant migrations nor conversations export.
any updates on this? exporting a conversation before deleting a channel in teams is CRUCIAL for historical data.
It would be great to be able to export all information from a channel with filtering for specific dates, then the accessibility to export an entire thread.

I'd like to be able to export a one to one conversation in MS Teams, the same way in which I export a user's mailbox.
The ability to take a conversation out to a file for record keeping is very important.
Will this form part of migration of Teams between regions?
Charlie Cousins commented
Agile team development rules require a couple things of collaborative software/apps:
1. High-end search capabilities
2. Content archiving that allows access by means other than the parent app
The reasons are obvious. In a fast-paced, multi-team environment dealing with ever-changing conditions, a business must be able to find team-engaged information quickly and ensure that the information does not evaporate due to a server malfunction or loss of app use.

I dont understand why such feature is still not out there? it would be helpful if it can be made available through connectors or some plugins
looking at how many people talk about this and how this will be useful, MS Team should work on priority

This would be SO helpful!
This is so needed, how to import and export to another teams domain... for legal reasons we need to export to a file to store somewhere for achieve

If we have to change the domain, we need to archive entire communication and files to newer domain within teams, it should be easier. In startups, it is quite often while pivoting.
I need a way to export my chat on teams.

When/how can we see conversation history? We need this for audit and access to terminated employees's files and conversations for historical knowledge and status of a project or task.
Love the idea
