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.

This is absolutely necessary since the chat log is often required to be included and archived with other artifact information.
This would be a huge help - making audit trail much easier.
Especially if you could then 'clear' the chat thread afterwards - so it can be used fresh at next requirement.
I can just agree with all messages.
Such a basic feature, it's just unbelievable it's not already there
Even export manually one conversation to flat text file in order to open it with Notepad could be enough
Couldn't agree more, seems a lot of us poor developers would highly appreciate such a feature !
pls... make it happen ;-)
/posts will give you access to all the comments in a JSON array, and will have the full comment. However the comment will have HTML embedded in the data.

please please please - with Covid-19 lockdowns, we're doing lots of remote connections. Keeping the history of the call or chat as part of our tickets will keep all the details in one location
Coincido con los compañeros que seria una funcionalidad fenomenal poder exportar el chat de una reunion de Teams así como tener un resumen de la misma incluyendo hora de inicio, hora de fin y participantes presentes.
Actualmente si quieres exportar un chat debes ir copiando mensajes a un documento Word o similar y para saberlos participantes, debes haberlos ido recogiendo manualmente en la llista de personas presentes en la reunion, no se puede saber si los invitados se han conectado o no a menos que lo hagas manualmente.
Significaria una gran ayuda para poder tener resúmenes de las reuniones relacionadas con un proyecto, preparar les siguientes,, ...

Hola buen día, estaría bueno y sería de suma importancia poder exportar los chat de teams, ya que por ahí los usuarios trabajan con proyectos y cuando uno se va de la empresa ese chat se pierde. Gracias
please enable this.

This has been requested by my line manager. Would be so nice to have a simple export conversation button
Considering that this request has begun since 2018, it's very surprising that the feature has not been implemented. It seems to be an easy upgrade.
This would be very helpful for our organisation, too!

My organisation is looking into resetting Teams and we need to be able to archive some of the conversations to keep historical records.
My team of 15 could definitely use the ability to export conversations! Please add it :)
Totally agree, very desirable feature to have please.

This would be a great addition. My job requires I keep backup of certain things. We just started using Teams and once people in my organization use it more I will need to download attachments and messages
Ray Wenger commented
I definitely need/could use this functionality.
Any further progress? Nothing since Aug 2018 (getting close to the 2 year mark)
This must be added to Teams

Essential for education! (archiving student-teacher interaction)

I cannot belive this. I'm thinking of another chat application not having this feature and cannot find anyone.
