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.

When a user is creating Wiki, please provide a warning that the data in Wiki cannot be moved to another channel or Team, cannot be exported, and cannot be printed. This way nobody will use Wiki and will be saved from the pain later.
@Warren; What gives?
Niels Alsted commented
Come on. Where is that see formatting button? Then we could at least do some copy /pasting.
2 years and couting.... come on MS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2 years in the backlog????? every few months I end up here looking for this feature. i would think moving content between teams channels is a pretty high priority.

Hellooooooow - sleeping at microsoft, can somebody update us? Basic functionality on the back-log since 2018...
Nathalie claes commented
How long will this stay on the backlog?

Microsoft ignoring user voice on this problem for almost 3 years.
As a workaround you can try a Perfect Wiki. It's a feature rich wiki for Microsoft Teams, with the option to move wiki pages between channels.

It may be technically possible. Here's what you do...
Go into "Open in SharePoint."
Go into Site Content tab > Contents > Teams Wiki Data
Select the Team Wiki folder you wish to access.
Select the "copy" or "move" command in the drop-down menu. Then select any of your existing Wiki folders on the right-hand sidebar.
I recommend creating a separate Team just for template purposes if you find yourself building repeated pages and files you wish to duplicate out. It's not simple, but it will save a ton of work over doing it manually.
On the backlog for years now. Microsoft, you are a joke! No wonder people are moving to platforms such as Atlassian despite the subscription costs....

Please please please provide this feature!! We have wikis that need to be shared across channels.
Ryan Smith commented
You would think this would have more votes. Wikis seem so useful for teaching staff both IT and non-IT skills, as well as sharing things like policies and best practices. Although, to be honest, most people ignore guidance documents and prefer just asking questions repeatedly.
With such a relatively weak response to this request, I assume Microsoft and the community are implying that Wikis aren't supposed to be that useful for knowledge sharing and that we should rather stick with old-school Word documents or perhaps OneNote documents, if we plan to make anything slightly complex or important that might need to be moved or copied somewhere.
I really can use this feature!
what is the status?

Does Warren still work there?
Gé Brander commented
Can someone from the Teams team please respond on the likelyhood of implementation?
James MacAdam commented
I would not even call this a feature, just a basic functionality issue.
Kelvin Prosyk commented
So fundamental, yet no action in 2 years?
