Allow moving a tab between channels
Allow moving any tab, besides files and conversation, between channels in a group. On top of being able to dragging tabs to rearrange them in a channel, allow us to drag the tab to a different channel altogether. If any conversation topics at about items in that tab, it would be nice to have those seamlessly migrate to the new channel as well.
For bonus points: Allow moving a tab between groups, in the event a group needs to be 'discontinued' without losing the data.
Thank you for your comments and votes. While there is no status change, we did want to share that the feature is still being considered and remains under review.
I need it too…...
+1 we are needing to be able to reorganize our teams workspaces by moving items between channels and sometimes to different teams. That functionality would be useful.

I need this feature. My company has a standard template for our MS Teams project teams, but my team wants to utilize a Task Tab as a Kanban board with some standard tasks for each project. I can not update our template as not all teams use tasks the same way, so I would like to be able to copy tasks between channels.

Yes! Yes! Yes!
Adding my +1, I have a wiki on the general channel but now there's a specific channel for the content it would make sense to move it...
Seriously, how is this not a thing?? As is mentioned below, this makes a Wiki almost useless as anything but a repository

Any update on this much needed feature, people have been requesting for over 2 years but still no solution in sight?
It is a must, when tabs are used as wikis, to be able to move or copy them from a channel to another. The current implementation is not flexible enough for a team managing a living wiki.
Another "yes, please" vote!! I just realized I created a form in the wrong channel and now can't move it :(
From a project management point of view, this would be very useful.
In the early days of a team, new information and ideas flow quite fast and somewhat randomly. Some of this information finds itself sitting in a tab of some sort, somewhere.
Over time, patterns emerge and you often end up running some sort of tidy-up on how the information in a project/team is structured.
Being able to move things around would provide significant value in being able to keep a team structured in whatever way makes logical sense for their evolving needs over time.
As it stands, locking a tab into it's initial place of birth is a bit too restrictive.
Yes, please make it possible to move or copy tabs between channels and teams.

Need this, please

Really important, to allow an evolving information architecture.
Equally important is the need to be able to copy Tabs or even groups of Tabs (as well as whole channels), or provision channels with tab sets

This functionality exists elsewhere in the MS "ecosystem" (File Mgr, SharePoint) so not having this ability in Teams seems a bit amazing to me. Having to delete and recreate tabs to effect a move between channels is a pain.

This is definitely required to scale MS Teams into the organisation.
I started a test wiki in one team and it grew to full wiki that I liked. However, my happiness was short-lived when I realized that I cannot simply 'move' the tab to another team (channel).
This is a challenge for me. It prohibits my team from being able to have a QA section for setting up and configuring an application and then moving it to production once it is configured and tested.
This is a must !
Yes! Sooner the better
