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.
As you can do a LOT more with emails than you can with a chat in Microsoft Teams -- in terms of organizing and filing the information, as well as, handling emails in other ways (such as applying rules) -- it would be very helpful to be able to forward Microsoft Teams message as an email.
There are add-ins for the phone which forwards text messages as emails, but seems to be nothing for Microsoft Teams.
I hope this feature will be implemented soon. As mentioned several times below. It is embarrassing not to have this feature :-). It is part of any basic messaging system.

The number of BASIC features that Teams doesn't have is astounding. If I wasn't stuck with this thing, I would dump it in a minute. There sure is a lack of intelligence from Microsoft on this one.
Seriously, this doesn't exist?
This is a prerequisite for a real messaging system. This basic feature was solved years ago by the software you compete with.

Please add this feature like most other chat systems support this allready!

Please add this feature, it exists on mobile but not on desktop! It's important to can forward message in Teams instead using Outlook ;)
Juan Hausherr commented
An important feature that is needed!

This kind of features are essential in a messaging system

Weird this isn't in the desktop version.
A simple quote functionality would be great as well..
Alex Pilsworth commented
Please add this feature.

Seems like a very basic messaging feature to me. Actually don't think I know a messaging / chat app that doesn't have it.

Would be great to preserve discussions as backup to transactions. Approved, means less in chat than in email, as it is difficult to bring such approvals to accounting software as back up. Even simple directives that make major changes would be great to record for support of such actions. Chats can be deleted.
Adding this feature apparently do not bring extra money for Microsoft owners so we will wait forever. How it is possible to review this for over 4 years? Are you kidding me. And next how many years to implement it?
Mark Pulley commented
How hard can it be??
Ruud Sampers commented
It would really help to kickstart an indept meeting with different stakeholders, with the chat as a reference.

How is this happening ? One of the most common sense and highest voted "features" has been under review for over 3 years? How?
I was using Slack for the last few years and thought MS Teams had more features, now I get why people hate MS ideologically, all flash no substance. You can add as much "Breakout rooms customisation features" as you 'd like but people just need to forward messages, you know, the basic stuff.
Please add this feature, it is in mobile but not desktop!
How can this feature not exist, as it does on every other messaging platform in existence?

And now we are in 2021, still actual. :))))

Please add this feature! It's common sense...
