We changed the mind about the way we used some channels. We decided that some of the channels need to be merged. It would be nice to be able to do this without using history. We want history to be merged.
This request is now being reviewed by the feature team! I’ll keep you posted as to the future decision.
John Gutknecht commented
This is long overdue and sadly needed. We struggle with the organizational flexibility and often find that channels were created that are no longer needed, or should have been different. Please prioritize this.
Reine Karlsson commented
Is this feature under development by now?
Said Tayar Segundo commented
My team need this feature too
William Martin commented
Just another vote saying that this feature would be very helpful. Update us when you can.
Kelli Echagarrua commented
Is there any update on this? Our company would also benefit from this feature. We have the need to merge channels without losing the relevant history.
My organization is interested in this as well. Would help in a lot of different clean up and data consolidation
Brian Ng commented
Our organisation is interested in this as a new feature as well, any updates?
Any update on this?
Same need for our team, we started too many channels, and now want to consolidate without losing history. Incredible that Microsoft can't fix this with so many people noting the shortcoming?
My organizing also has need to merge channel since we started reorganizing our teams site when we complete projects. This would be a great feature we immediately need. Please move up the priority on this item.
I think this is an essential feature and should be highly prioritised.
The way we organise in Teams is highly correlated with the company organisational structure. In bigger companies this continuously change, and we should be able to do so in MSTeams without loosing any history. This should be easily available for the individual teams admins on a channel level, and also across teams on a higher admin level.

Is there any updates on this Merging option or how to permanently delete a file once uploaded to Teams without having to keep replacing existing one.
This is a big gap in functionality to make the product much more user friendly!

Looking forward to seeing this feature soon! When you want to allow people to create channels on the one hand but also need to reign in how many unwanted ones get created, being able to merge & consolidate as opposed to delete the channel is important to our business
Jason B commented
So need this feature to be able to merge multiple channels into one Team
Chris Struble commented
This would be a very useful feature for our team.
I agree this is a must.
I started a team and created a lot a channels.
I now need to merge many of them
