Need ability to move or migrate conversation data in the event we merge an old team to a new one
Shawn Fielding commented
Yes, we are restructuring our Teams now that we have made a mess of them in our pilot and have learned a ton. But alas, migrating or exporting the conversations in Teams is nearly impossible. Although there does seem to be a c# solution to exporting them available in github, that's really not an option for us. Migrate or export. I don't really care, but we need it.

i agree too, but it might be apart of a greater piece to move teams.
need this asap
Jason Hall commented
We need this, not only when we merge an old team into a new one but also when reorganising the channels and folders within an existing team. In certain regulatory environments, it is required to maintain the conversations held during the creation of different versions of a key document therefore, in order to be compliant, we maintain the conversations. Which means, we cannot currently move documents in Teams, which for end-users seems like going backwards to how they may have worked previously. It becomes a hard sell.

We need this! As we've been rolling out Teams, we are streamlining the corporate-level Teams and Channels we've already built - it would be so great to be able to move the content from Teams and Channels we are closing to ones that are open...

Agree. This is absolutely needed.
Absolutely necessary. Faced that issue and no tool to migrate to new tenant
this is a must-have feature and cannot believe it's not available
this is so important for when companies merge or acquire other companies who both have teams and they want to retain data and threads in Teams
seem at present, there is no tool to move entire Team functionality, we all know every team site linked with SharePoint and O365 Group, you can use Sharegate or Metalogic to move SharePoint data and BitTitan tool to migrate O365 Group data and ask owner to recreate the Team Group, with this way it display all data in destination tenant

I also would like the ability to move Teams from one tenant to another. Our company currently is using one domain xyz.com but will soon be migrating our O365 domain to our parent corporations O365 domain zyx.com we would really like to move our chat's, channel's, wiki's etc when we make the move

to add to this - I would find it helpful to move conversations to different channels. For example, when a topic starts on the "General" channel, and warrants the creation of a separate channel, it would be great to move all of the related messages over, for better organization
Dear Suphatra, i found various similar requests, so I will post my comment here rather that opening a new thread. Its about moving conversation history, - chats, - from one place to another, or export/import thereof. We have started Knowledge exchange initiative in our company, using Teams. Works fine, search is fantastic, integration options are great and user acceptance is MUCH higher than classical Sharepoint. After a while, we've noticed that we created too many teams and it would make sense to merge some of those. Or to rearrange. Everything is doable manually, - files, tabs, connectors...except of chat history, - I cant find a way to move whole history of chats from one Team to another. Maybe you can recommend some technical workaround via API ? The point is, we have valuable knowledge residing in chat, announcements, statements, etc...and we dont want losing it, but a rearrangement is necessary from time to time.
I dont expect a comfortable "move" button, since I understand the complexity of this task, but f.e. an export into external file and then import in other teams channel ? With prerequisite that users on sender and recipient part are same to have a 100%match?
thanks a lot
We have instances when we need to migrate or move from one tenancy to another. Moving conversations would be really useful
