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.

This is available in the mobile app. Why is it not in the desktop app yet?

How is this under review for 2,5 years?!!?!?!?!? This is a feature that every messaging tool should have on it's MVP list. What's so hard about this? What is your problem Teams teams? Why is it so hard to create a basic usable tool.
Just open Slack and see how this could and should be done
Especially useful when you want to forward a screenshot a teammate sent you, to another teammate!
The only way to do this now is to download the file to your computer, then re-upload it in the other chat, which is very annoying.
It's a mandatory feature. Unusable without.
@Warren Its been more than 2 years since this request is made, and still no update? How long is this "review" process you mentioned should last?
This is a basic stuff, and always existed in your previous enterprise messaging apps like Lync, Skype for Business etc.
Forwarding function on Desktop app is a no-brainer. Please MS, get this done

👆UP! 👆UP! 👆UP! Please!
Add an option to forward message to user, teams, channels, etc...
For the sake of a good messaging app! Can you guys learn from existing platforms? Facebook? Whatsapp? Instagram?
I don't need to be a UI expert to just look around for the basics of any communication App.
I spend so much time screen-printing and pasting to an email. Of course images and links are gone, as well as copy paste. This would be important because it allows us to use teams more, in case a convo starts in email. Now I start a lot more conversations in email to begin with because this has burned me so much!
Yes, basic Functionality like FORWARDING MESSAGES and Looking at A WHOLE MONTH CALENDAR are ridiculously not part of Teams. really a great communication and scheduling app.
This is most important in my line of work

People say how cool is MS Teams, but it still learning simple things such as message FORWARDING!
please dear god add this feature to forward messages from one chat to another on desktop. i have to go to my mobile to do it everytime.
Please allow us to forward a message on the desktop version of Teams just as you can on IOS. Use it all the time an end up pickup phone to do it even though working from laptop.
It is possible to forward both a chat and a post in a channel, but only from phone so far.
However, if you do it, it doesn't say anything about who wrote it in the beginning - only the content. That is not sufficient, I believe...
Microsoft - what's so difficult about it?
Would be great, I constantly copy / paste messages or even whole message streaks between chats...

This is implemented an iOS why not in Desktop-Version? Absolut basic feature. Our users are creating Screenshots of messages to forward them.
Would love to see this.
Yes, we need this
