Allow copying whole chat conversations
Currently, it's not possible to select & copy more than one message in a chat. When I try to select two or more messages, the focus stays on the first message making it impossible to copy whole chat.
There are some really ugly workarounds like: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams/Copying-conversations/td-p/62849 which I don't consider a solution of the situation.
I want to be able to select multiple messages at once and copy them by hitting CTRL+C.
Thank you for your suggestion! We really appreciate the feedback and idea. We have reviewed this request and started working on it. I’ll let you know as it nears completion.

Right click on conversation, copy conversation to text would be nice!
A better solution is urgently required. I can't believe this is something we have to beg for...
why is this taking so long?
cisco Jabber can do it!!!
It was always possible before until Microsoft took over and disabled it! Stupid!
I am also copying a chat of my girlfriend manually now. I am already scrolling upwards for two hours and am still not there. It takes ages this way! Such a waste of time!

We need the ability to copy whole conversations today. For us it is an essential part of documenting design decisions. We switched to Teams without understanding this unacceptable limitation, which never crossed my mind until I tried to save a whole conversation in Word a few minutes ago.
Please address this issue. Many thanks.
Why can't you copy and paste a conversation in Teams?!
This is something I have to deal with at least 20 times a day, EVERY day. Skype did it wonderfully. Biba did it wonderfully, MSN MESSENGER and AIM had this baked in, for crying out loud.
How does this only have 685 votes, when other things have thousands?
Really need the ability to email contents of a chat to those who do not have access to teams - we are needing this multiple times a day to update vendors on project updates.
on my laptop it is very difficult to select all the messages in a conversation ( i want to mail a copy of the transcript)
adding my voice to this missing feature ... come on guys, this was a basic feature in skype/lync get your act together .. rather forcing us to a half baked service
Is this still not done yet? Looks like development started almost a year ago? Tryin g to determine if the reason I cannot copy is user error or not
I agree, the ability to copy and foward chats would be awesome.

How is this not fixed?? Being able to select text of a conversation seems like it would be a fundamental feature of an enterprise chat client.
what is status of this?
This seems to be an issue from the get go.
Please fix it!
Why cannot you not copy and paste lines in teams
Please hurry!! I would like to use this.
I can't believe you haven't fixed this yet. I wish I could go back to the old desktop version.
