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.
Missing this feature we are not able to deeper install Teams in our business :-( We would love to !

Ability to "save a hard copy" of a conversation is essential. In most cases it needs to be possible to save it in a sharepoint file with the accompanying work.
Agree tht this could be as some kind of "export to OneNote" option, but it needs to be uneditable to serve as a record of the conversation.
This would be nice to just even be able to save into txt files. It's not like we're asking for a new feature that hasn't been developed yet. This feature was available on skype for business called chat history. Not sure why Microsoft teams isn't following through with feature from their old system. This feeling I have about microsoft is like going backward in technology rather then forward. This is why no one upgrades because of things like these.

saving as mhtml (text and pictures, no files, no videos) would be nice
Can we please have updates on this item. Migrating Teams to other Teams has become a vital need in our organization.

Being able to export Teams chat is critical in accountability and documentation.
It is crucial for trackability and documentation. If backup of activities and chats remains unavailable, the usefulness of Teams will be seriously compromised.
Please allow export. Crucial
Still under review? This is incredibly helpful for groups and projects, but a hard-copy of discussions, notes and conversations is still necessary for many projects to succeed
I you expect us to use teams in company environment it qould be very usefull to have the ability to archive complete chats

現在提供されている compliance search の機能では、チャット ログを PST 形式でエクスポートし、Outlook クライアントで閲覧することができるが、これを Teams クライアント側に再度取り込むことができない制限がある。
Currently provided compliance search functionality allows you to export chat logs in PST format and view them in the Outlook client, but there is a limitation that this can not be recaptured on the Teams client side.
In preparation for data loss in the data center, we strongly hope to have the ability to output the chat log as a backup as well as the ability to restore the backup.

Under review for 9 months. Please provide an update with point of view on when this functionality will be available. I suspect this a significant roadblock for customers to move from Skype to Teams.
It's very important to be able to archives the messages. And above all customers will look for this feature

We need a response on this! This is going to be an issue for auditing/litigation hold. Please advise!

I use the chat function within meetings as a facilitation tool (i.e. ask question, have everyone comment, then we discuss). It would make note taking so much easier if I didn't have to copy each comment or re-type for my notes afterwards.
I am at the present moment been asked to migrate an existing channel to another team within the organisation due to a restructure. And I have just noticed that it can not be done.
The ability to export /audit Teams would be an important feature for many of our clients.
Really need this functionality for audit purposes to provide evidence of meetings
I have a number of people in my company requesting a way to export the chat history. I have told them they can archive the team and get back to it, but they don't like that. They really want to be able to save the conversation.
