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.

We are certainly hearing from many users at our organization that we're needing similar capabilities.
It also looks like there is a very similar User Voice request to this one that has over 1900 votes:
We'd love to see some movement or updates on where this may be in the process.
Work just moved fr Skype to MS Teams, really really missing the auto-generated email I received for the Skype Conversation! Getting the information out of the Teams chat has been quite the challenge. Unbelievable this was not taken into consideration as a business requirement before the transition. Please provide a targeted Prod release date for this capability. This enhancement request looks like it is over 2.5 years old!
I can't believe that we can't copy a full chat conversation and save or email it. And this is why people still use Skype.
Are you kidding me, when you do not have a feature to copy chats. Some products of MS really suck

Really? This wasn't obvious from the start?
what are thinking about .is it really possible to do so...you can use lucky patcher https://apkraid.com/lucky-patcher-free-download-app/ for further modification of your android device
It's 2020 - do we have a way to copy Teams chats yet please?
Ha ha ha.. This is going Crazy.

Why just "started" in Teams? After so many requests and frustrations?
Why not use in Teams all options available in Skype, for example, where I can Ctrl+A to select "all" conversation, then Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V.
"all" - because not all pieces are selected - so I have to fish for missing and then save them individually
When pasting intermediately into Notepad (to remove all formatting), I have to save as Unicode, otherwise all time is replaced by "???" - why not ansi?

2 years later it still does not work
Hi, all. Very important to have this functionality. And, if possible, can the chat be sent/logged to RTF or something, for easy archiving?

Guys, Microsoft Teams is pathetic to say the least, There is no way to copy the entire chat.
Is satya nadella eating sht daily ??
Selecting text in teams chat window is getting on my nerves. I select few words from a reply but it selects everything on that reply. Its more than 2 years, still you guys are fixing it. Shame on you guys.
2 Years and still "working on it".... apes

Feeling hopeful! Especially important for the chat that goes with a meeting, a lot of content ends up in that chat.
Unable to select the chat conversation and Copy them by hitting CTRL+C. I want to Select All the chats conversation by CTRL+A and then Copy them by hitting CTRL+C. How can i do it?
will this also copy pictures and emojis?
Copying the whole chat is definately needed
