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.

I vote yes on being able to export conversations and chats. We routinely discuss important client expectations and design decisions in teams and need to be able to archive the conversation to the project directory for historic purposes. Our records are kept on file for 7 years and need to be accessible to lawyers and non team members for that entire time.
Just do it or make some way to travel in time through conversation window. As it is now, it is pretty much useless and nobody can find anything older than a few days...
Is this now available in MS Teams? Thanks
I came here looking for answers and I may get better luck playing lotto!
Would be great to have this. Don't want to wait for the newborn baby on Mars :)
The year 2099. The colony on Mars celebrate its first million newborn baby. Back on earth MS Teams conversions/posts still can't be exported.
Please add this feature.
It is a must have, for record purposes.

Please move from review to action. Sooner rather than later.

Due to auditory by our organization I need to export the chat.

How is this still not a thing and under review for almost 2 years?

We are using Teams to track incidents in our CSIRT, but for audit reasons, it is necessary to be able to export it ...
We do not want to stop using it but we are forced since we cannot export the chats.
I am wondering, there is for me really no cause at all, that there is no export possibility
probably some DLpolicies need to be considered on this feature as well. But hey, this is some of super basic feature that we should not ignore, everyone knew this is essential how come this is not available?
omgomgomg please please make chat history easy to grab.
Very much needed option! This should be basic functionality in my opinion.
When is this going to be implemented?
I can't believe this is not a MVP for v1 of Microsoft Team feature and have to be requested by users. Really?

Maybe add a "Send to OneNote" button like with Outlook. Our company has a retention policy that deletes everything older than 30 days. Legal dept says if a conversation is important, we should export it. but there is no good export function in Teams.
Yeah, should have been part of the initial release. Basic functionality...

This feature should be default right now, in my opinion.
I feel so inconvenient to get our conversation data.
I could not understand why microsoft can control, prevent conversation data from export by user.
