Is Microsoft still "Working on it"? It's been almost a year…

I was just talking with a co-worker about this feature. This feature would be amazing to have.
Definitely a must have feature now that Teams is getting heavy use. Too many Team sites are getting created when they should have just been a channel in an existing team. We are all realizing that our list of team memberships is getting too big because of this.
this is a must have feature
Hey there! Is there any movement on this at all? The last "Working On It" post was a year ago.
It's a bit crazy how much our project team is affected by the inability to reorder Channel lists and copy/move conversations from one Channel to another.
Been using Teams for about a year now and due to teams members starting conversations in the wrong place, it is starting to look messy . This is an urgent 'must-have' requirement if MS are serious about making this a long term way of storing and finding important conversations and improving corporate memory.
This. User OFTEN start a conversation in the wrong channel. Nothing you can really do with it now.

Any updates on this?
It would be very necessary
David Egle commented
I need this functionality also.
We need this very bad, migrating from one tenant to another, need to move teams as we would lose lot of important data.
My teams really need this function as well!
Need this feature!!

The main advantage of Teams is that you can find the right information in the right spot. If something is in the wrong spot, credibility for Teams will quickly deteriorate. Please prioritize this function.

Yes, this is something that happens very often and it is a nightmare to deal with it. So being able to move conversations within channels would be very handy.

People start using email when admins can't control and manage Teams properly. Being able to put conversations where they belong is essential.

Hey @Suphatra We need this feature badly as we cannot continue with conversations being dumped just because you cannot move them to the new active team.

Would definitely be helpful to be able to move conversations to different channel - especially when group is just learning program conversation tend to land in whichever channel is open at the time VS where it really belongs. Having this feature will allow organization of conversations after the fact.
