Forwarding message feature!
Title speaks for itself :) That would be really cool.
Love you, MT!
This is still under review, no decision has been made. But I will keep following up with the feature team and providing them your feedback.
There must be a method to forward a chat to outlook as an email.

At the very least introduce the conversation history like S4B had. We should not have just manually copy/pasting as an option.

Much needed feature!
Lync Skype... whatever you want to call it had this very simple yet important feature... please include it in Teams so it can really be a true 'Office collaborative environment tool'
I need this. Now!
Lars Lynch commented
This feature is present in the Android version of Teams if you long press a message but not in the desktop or web versions. I understand that we want to avoid the forked conversation problem that arises in email conversations but forwarding a single/multiple messages seems like a reasonable request.

Is there an ETA to this? Seems very limiting that text has to be manually copied and pasted, and images cannot even be copied.
I've seen reports that this has been added as a feature but still can't see it on my Outlook. Is it an Add-On? Is it now possible to upload and email and/or an email attachment to a Teams Channel without copying the email link first? Please advise.
really need this! Especially forwarding images
Important feature for our team
Fabian Seither commented
Our Users take screenshots of messages and copy-past them to new Messages, because this feature is missing.
Skype chats were saved in Outlook in the Conversation History. That is very useful for compliance and accountability. We need the ability to save Teams chats in the same way.
Please add that feature back asap.

Still under review?!
Like everyone else posting here, this should have been standard from the start given the 'powerful business tool' hyperbole.
As is, it's rather like a social media 'chat' room which suffers from limited usability & actually cutting off collaboration as one must still revert to Outlook for serious business matters.
Honestly, it's quite off putting.

This should be standard functionality....simply amazed it isn't! A MS offering that doesn't work with another MS app in the same suite???
also waiting for this feature. Would be a productivity increase of at least 400% for me.....
This seems like a basic feature for an app that is being touted as such a powerful business collaboration tool.
I could list many uses for this, but the one that brought me here today is the ability to email a conversation out of the teams app in order to send it to a helpdesk/service desk portal to create a helpdesk ticket. As incredibly useful as Teams is (and can be), it really seems like this should be close to a basic feature.
I am amazed this requires a prolonged "review" and that "no decision has been made". Any serious operation with multiple teams would be crippled without this.

Please hurry this development. Seems crazy

Yeah what year are we in? Using Ctrl+Alt+Print to forward messages. Seriously?
