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.

Please implement this. It would be so useful
2020 and still not possible to cut&paste
Totally agree, especially for us helpdesk technicians who use teams every day and need to paste ENTIRE conversation to work notes, just switched from Skype to Teams and I can't believe this is a missing feature.

Access to a searchable text archive of our chats (or at least to be able to copy and paste loads of one from within teams) seems like a pretty useful change. \_(**)_/
Now with the Corona virus spreading people are working from home using Teams and other tools. Just noticed I can't copy paste more than one message. I think we can all agree this is a basic function that should be implemented and shouldn't be too hard to develop.
Please Microsoft add this feature.
On second look, I noticed I can actually select more than one message but there is a limit that is hit very soon. So I can copy like 10 messages at a time. And images are not copied.

I just can't believe this is not something available from day one.
Very annoying that this is not a thing yet, why it was ever removed is a mystery
Arghhh just started using Teams. Had a 5 hour meeting yesterday and expected to be able to copy and paste the chat into the meeting notes for circulation.
Really disappointed and surprised to see I am unable to do this.
I concur with everyone else - this is a key feature and needs fixing esp considering it has been raised multiple times over the last few years.

This is disappointing.. even after 2 years of consistent comments, not seeing any actions taken.. still we can not copy all the chat in teams room..?
Being able to copy the ENTIRE chat and aste it elsewhere is important. Please fix asap. Skype for Business allows this. Issues like this makes Teams unpopular.
Any news here after 2 years working on that issue?
Pretty sure this will never been implemented. Very nice feature that you can't copy parts of the Teams conversations. Very useful.
Progress update? It's been well over a year...
Still not an option?? Year and 1/2 later. Jeez.
LoserVoice- are you still working on it from November 2018?? don't be fake and insincere.
I have to manually copy each sentence from a long conversation. Are you kidding?? This app is a big loser.
Here it is Feb 28, 2020, and I need to take my chat and put it somewhere else to review and refine the conversation, it still doesn't work. I can't copy the dialogue between the person and me. What a loser this app is. I'm shocked something like that would be prevented or not modified to work. DUMB. SO F'ING IRRITATING. THIS COSTING ME PRECIOUS TIME

I just can't believe that it's been over a year and they still haven't fixed this basic request, please let me know when and if you do...

Still an issue. A super irritating issue. I need to copy entire conversations frequently. This has been over a year since this was raised. Come on Microsoft - this should not be this hard.
Aggravating me too no end too. Microsoft could fix this so easily..... please do so quickly...!!!
