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.
Yo guys, I can't believe you don't have this simple feature. It's literally ruining the a workflow.
I understand from Warren's message that MS has till not made a decision about this basic need.
Even other companies like Jabber/Cisco is providing this feature to send emails to your MS Outlook account.
What is the reason that after so many years MS hasn't decided to implement this feature yet?
It would be very helpful to have this feature on the Desktop app

That's a joke, that this feature is missing, it must be!
the fact this exists on the mobile client (in my case android), but not on desktop client is just bizarre.

Sometime it will be good to forward a conversation to a 3rd party, where they do not need to join a chat session, but should be aware of the conversation that occurred.
An example is system engineer's discussing system issues and determined that a architected would need to evaluate the environment. Would have been nice to just e-mail them chat so they can review on their own. No need to have them on a discussion that has already occurred.

What is there to "review" about this? You dropped the ball on this feature, fix it already.

Yes, it is available on mobile (iPhone) but not on the desktop client 🤷🏻♂️
Absence of forwarding a message in desktop version make no sense.

Absence of this feature is very inconvenient at times. How can this be not present in 2020 while SLACK is going so fast

How is this still unavailable at this point? It's available in the mobile app - surely more should be possible on the desktop app not less??
need to be able to select a thread, or a few messages and forward.
Daniel Bell commented
Agree, this and reply showing which message you are replying too (as you can do in the mobile app) needs to be implemented. 👍
a click to email in the chat window, opens in outlook with the email and subject prefilled.
Please Add this!
Any updates on this? Would love to see this on Desktop client.
- message forwarding and image/attachment forwarding from chat to chat or even posts to chat and vica versa.
At first, I couldn't believe this was not added by default...then I go on my phone and I see the option there and I'm stunned. Why is this not added by default? Makes the desktop version stupid. I think it is just a crazy idea to be in a serious chat on my pc and then have to switch to my phone to forward a message to someone I was chatting on my pc and worse still I have to wait at least 30 seconds for the mobile app to be fully open.
I think going through that hassle just to forward a message is crazy and I think whoever thought about this did not consider user-friendliness and ease of use.
Also from an o365 security admin standpoint, I can't even see how this helps when there is no option to permit or deny the feature.

I found recently that you could transfer/forward message using the Teams Mobile application. Like the Reply function, it seems to be available on mobile but not on desktop...
There is no point in having a teams messaging platform that can't forward a chat ... having to sidestep this issue by using a mobile is stupid.
Hi, This feature would be a sensible addition to Microsoft Teams chat.
Chats where it's at.
