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.
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
Really need this.
Silly that we can't do this. So much is fluid and evolving - the ability to move and not lose the history is a definite must have. This is especially true as we use teams for planning and projects - and things get finished! It would be awesome to be able to keep an archive that was tucked away versus cluttering things.

We need this please.
Glad to see this is under review. Product team this feature is one of the top requested from users. Mostly among project managers who often need more flexibility among projects.
Ian Wright commented
Definitely need this. Especially since it looks like development is working on allowing guests to be assigned to channels rather than teams.
When that happens, I'm going to want to consolidate the separate teams that I've created to work with vendors and customers. As it exists, I'd be starting from scratch.

This item goes with moving channels between teams. As we get a better feel for how we want to organize Teams, it is necessary to be able to move a tab from one channel to another or into a channel in another team. It is not too difficult to create a new tab and relink the associated content, but you lose all of the conversation that would be associated with that tab. It is important to be able to retain this conversation history.
It would be good if we could move tabs to different channels. As one of our projects has grown we have added more channels to make it more organised, but we have to re-link all of the relevant tabbed files to the new channel individually. It would be great if a tab could be dragged and dropped into a different channel.
