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.

On the Mac, need to be able to copy multiple messages and then paste them into other programs. This feature works well in consumer Skype.

This is the most notable deficiency from moving from Skype to Teams.
Skype lets you do:
[11/09/2017 15:59:12] Alice Jones: Here is my IM comment about something or other
In theory, it should update every 5 minutes
[11/09/2017 16:06:31] Bob Smith: Here in my reply about that
[11/09/2017 16:07:43] Alice Jones: Here is my comment to that
[11/09/2017 16:12:24] Bob Smith: etc.
Which is useful when you want to reference the IM conversation in another system.
Where as Teams just flashes the selection on/off when you multi-select messages and only if you catch the timing just right can you CTRL+C it. And then you get something like this which is not very useful:
Morning, my comment - who ever I am?
Some other comment (is this from Alice?)

i should be able to copy the conversation from top or anywhere from between to be able to paste is in our CRM for logging.

I cannot select multiple messages at the same time. Sometimes I need to copy full conversations and this is impossible to be done from Teams
Please make it to select all conversation to copy all at once.
