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.

More than 3yrs have passed and such a simple feature is still under review???
I really like teams, but the inability to forward a chat is a HUGE pain for me.
Wow, after 3 years since this was requested, M$ still can't get its ducks in a row ...
A big shame, considering that Skype for Business already had this covered, automatically.
'Chat to email' should've been baked into Teams from day one.
Vote up for 'chat to email' or at least 'copy Chat with Format' feature
Adding my vote for chat 2 email

please add the feature for being able to take a chat conversation and send it as an email. That would be so efficient
IT gets bombarded with questions in chat that should be sent to the helpdesk. We need IT to be champions of Teams; they currently see it as another interruption. It would be great if they could forward chat messages to other members on the IT help desk.
We need this. Every other message system has this. I need to forward items from one chat and share it with another team.
Please make this available on desktop application
Please make this happen! Thanks to lock down and working remotely, a quick chat over Teams quickly turns into instructions ... the kind of instructions that actually should be in email communication.

We have been getting chat messages in TEAMS that should be service requests in our helpdesk software (ManageEngine). We'd like to be able to forward those requests directly to our helpdesk email account.
single chat sharing is non sense thing. No one can understand with single chat. It require all chat conversation. Skype is far better than team. Where skype chat is integrated with outlook atleast.
My company is transitioning from Skype to Teams. When using Skype, I would frequently go to my Conversation History folder in my Outlook to reply to a Skype chat via email. Use case: someone sends me a chat asking for something, but I cannot reply right away or need to do some research on their request. The ability to retrieve the chat from my Conversation History and reply from Outlook was very helpful. I understand all of the communication is meant to sit within Teams now but Outlook is still the primary means of communication, and I always file my emails and really rely on having them when looking for past communications.
Our previous IM app did allow saving an entire chat thread to email. This is a serious gap using MS Teams.
The ability to forward an entire chat stream as an e-mail would be extremely useful.
Please make it possible to send an entire conversation to Outlook. I see that you can send just one of the remarks in the chat, it would be helpful to be able to send the whole conversation.
