Move a wiki page to a different channel
After writing an extensive wiki page in an existing channel, it became large enough to have it's own channel. Moving the page over to the new channel was very cumbersome because all the sections and formatting gets lost when copying over the text. I see that a page can be moved up or down within the wiki itself, but there is not option to move it to a different channel and believe this feature should be added.
This feature request is still on the backlog. No new information to share at this time.
Moving a Teams wiki would be extremely useful. I'm shocked that it isn't a feature. The wikis should also have an easy export to pdf, markdown, in fact the Azure DevOps wiki should be able to pull from the Teams wiki
We are eager to start using Teams Wiki pages, but we will not risk doing so before this is possible. So many times already, we have reorganised our teams. Do not want to manually have to set up the wiki again every time.
This would be very useful. Please implement
The idea of Teams is to COLLABORATE. How can we collaborate if we cannot move info from one channel to the other? And wiki is a valuable part of knowledge base - a content than can be needed to various channels - I wonder - what is the logic behind the actual way things work.
So, It will be a very welcome feature - and more - core option from my point of view.
Thanks in advance!

they enabled moving text documents and even upgraded that to ms word documents... all the way back in windows 3.11 and enhanced it in windows 95... imagine if you couldn't move a word document between folders...

One more time M$ sucks... This seems so basic to move files from one channel to the other but, no, it doesn't work.... And discovering this feature is asked for... years!

Just another person requesting this.

I find this incredibly frustrating, a very promissing but improperly implemented feature. Is there anyone at Microsoft looking over uservoice? or is this just a way to ventilate user frustrations?
Warren, So creating Templates is a no go for Microsoft Teams, we will need to create from scratch every single time we create a new team and copy from an existing team. What's the point of creating from an existing team if it doesn't bring over everything you created in that team?

Echoing the comments, below. The lack of flexibility in moving/editing Wiki notes makes me regret using the feature.
When will we see this functionality, no answers yet, is there a proposed timeline?

The lack of ability to re-arrange wiki makes it virtually unusable. Please add this feature.

Trying to clean up my channels and frustrated that I can't easily move a wiki between channels as I work to simplify my channels.

I'd like to move pages from my personal wiki to a team wiki and was quite surprised that this does not work!
This does not fit with using wiki for "easy-entry" documentation where you just rearrange if the organisation need changes.

I am encouraging people to use Teams, but this is an example where it is more difficult to be flexible in how the information is organized. The ability to move the wiki to another channel or Teams site seems pretty basic. Can someone at MS respond?

So my advice to everyone is Don't Use a Wiki. Instead, use a Word document because you can at least easily move that to another channel.
Unfortunately this still does not work.
I moved my wiki content via Sharepoint Team site - site content - teams wiki data. There the files are mht pages. Unfortunately I do not see them in Teams on the wiki tab.
I have moved to a different team and simply want to carry across the Wiki information I produced from my previous team
Any updates on this subject?
It has been 1 year since you informed this request has been in the backlog task list and seems it has not been released.

It's bad enough that I can't simply move a Wiki page from my personal area to a Team area... but the fact that copy/paste doesn't work properly is just crazy!
