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.

In case anyone is still looking for help on this one, I posted a "how to" for working around this in the meantime - https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-teams/how-to-copy-teams-wiki-pages-answered/m-p/2785567#M100681
Crazy, how is this not an option. Either add features to enable this sort of simple stuff or replace the wiki bit entirely with a wiki2 and set that as the default so users dont keep wandering down this road, dont just keep your head in the sand and ignore the community.
do i have to come down there and be your product owner? because i will if that's what it takes to get this feature in place.

I have been using teams for two years. Overall OK, but not having this feature available to move data from wiki is a real negative. If I were to switch to another platform for teams, any suggestions?

So frustrating that this has not been done yet. Microsoft, start listening to your users!
This feature is needed.
arghhh. Back to using a word document that is embedded as a tab

Hey, 3-rd party wiki solutions can help you with moving data between MS Teams channels. Here is a good overview of available solutions -> https://perfectwiki.xyz/blog/best-wiki-apps-for-ms-teams-2021/

Seriously, why is not yet implemented ?

The WIKI object in MS Teams is a great collaboration and content development tool. I highly recommend that portability such as copy to another channel or copy to another MS Team should be made available.
still on the backlog and still no new information to share reg this feature??
The ability to move or copy Wiki data to another channel is a much needed feature.
Three and a half years, and this still can't be done??

I have made my first wiki page in teams under the General channel. It is a simple page. I made another channel that better describes the function. Yet, I regret that there were no standard procedure to move the wiki page to the adjacent channel. Lacking this feature is awkward being used to the standard Windows desktop environment for decades.
Very unfortunate that it is still not possible. Please implement the Import/Export/Copy of Wiki Tabs

Need this ability. Otherwise, just rip wiki from teams. If it's not portable, it's a waste to have it there.
Can we copy a wiki from one Team (or channel) to another yet please?!

We reorganize our actual real-world teams yearly, and we try to keep Microsoft Teams matching how we are really organized. So that means moving things around. Yearly. COME ON MICROSOFT -- if I could advise my superiors to abandon your product, I would, just for this one HUGE time waster.
It's not difficult to do in a real wiki or in other groupware systems... why do you keep ignoring this?
