        This feature would be very helpful! I accidentally posted a huge convo in the general channel today and it would be much appreciated if I could move it to a more specific channel. Please provide updates on this.

        Our team(s) also really require this feature. What seems to be the best idea would be the ability to "Share" a conversation from a channel to another channel (especially if it is a channel from another team).That way not everyone in the conversation has to all be on the same channel. In cases where a conversation is simply in the wrong place, allowing admins/owners to move a conversation is also very helpful.

        I am really surprised that this has not gotten an update in almost six months. If Teams got new features more often, I am quite sure that most organizations could completely replace Slack and other solutions for teams.

        Moving conversations to another channel is one feature. Ability to be able to tag conversations across different channels would be better - the conversation could be same for multiple projects / discussions and would like to see comments and responses across the channels rather tan limit to one channel.

        Status update? Not having this feature will start moving users away from Teams..

        Friendly reminder - we are all still waiting for this feature.

        Previous admin response is 5 months old, and the survey is not accessible? This is really urgent. Any considerable use of Teams quickly leads to conversations in the wrong channel, which is very confusing. This seems like such a minor fix, but with a huge increasing impact over time.

        Moving off topic conversations from one channel to another channel in the same team, or another channel in another team is a top urgent must have feature in order to keep project work organized and structured. Please increase priority and provide this asap, thx.

        We've just started using Teams, and there is many examples of things starting in the General conversation tab, and realizing that some of the items should have another channel to help filter out some of the noise in the general channel. Wish we could move those comments over to that new channel to keep it all organized.

        Yes this would be awesome! Many of our departments start first with a group chat then realize they should have setup a "TEAM" instead. They don't want to lose the chat history so being able to migrate a group chat into a new "TEAM" would be awesome!

        We have started a conversation outside a team and, now it it gaining importance need to move this into a team. Why is this not possible?
