How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Move conversations to different channels

If a conversation is started in one channel but gains importance to the point where the conversation deserves its own channel. Or a conversation was started in the wrong channel and needs to be moved

    Such feature is fundamental.
    Because we miss it, we are considering to use other tools to exchange messages, information and files.
    We are currently working with a Teams comprising 18 channels and with > 200 users.
    Noone can find the important messages back. It became a mess.
    We want to decrease the number of channels we initially created in a specific Teams, but without removing the message therein.
    Thanks to implement this asap so that we can reorganise the whole bunch.

    Would love this feature - we are currently merging business units and it would be fantastic to be able to move all Teams content from existing units to new ones.

    This would be an extremely useful and helpful feature if you want to transfer conversations from one team channel to another.

    For example, if there was an error in naming the channel when created, renaming it appears to be a superficial fix. It does not change the underlying SharePoint sub-site created and thus when creating docs with full file path names in footers, it gives the incorrect name.

    Appreciate it would be better to name the channel correctly in the first place but sometimes the channel name genuinely needs to change for all sorts of reasons. My only option at the moment appears the to screen capture pages of conversations and save them as file in the new channel correctly named.

    Transferring documents etc., in SharePoint is easy, so come on Microsoft, make the transfer of conversations just as easy please! :-)

    Just voted for this feature as I believe it is very useful, especially when people publish in the General channel and then want to move it to a specific channel.

    Yes this one we are finding as channels grow and need to be moved to dedicated team primarily for security reasons - I want to share the channel but not the whole team?

    But yes, vote for this feature. Conversations often break out in an existing team/channel which triggers the creation of a new channel or team/channel.
