Export your conversations to a document.
it would nice to have the feature to export your conversation to a document such as a word document or excel or to a file alike. this would be Handy if you need to send out the conversations to someone who you would not normally have apart of your team. this would save time and make it more user friendly. Also it will give the opportunity to store the conversation easily in a nother file
The solution to this is.
From the Ms Teams Chat, the person's chat which you want to copy needs to be opened. Then click on POP-OUT CHAT from top right. Highlight the chat conversation by scrolling from top to bottom.
Copy the chat using keyboard command CTRL+C and now you can paste the conversation to word document or notepad file.

I was amazed by a level of frustration i reached when I had to clip the screen of teams, pane by pane, and then paste it to word document to send it later.
Even IBM Sametime had it as a feature.
Thanks to MS Teams now I miss it.

Yes, please implement ASAP!!
Agghhh, this is very annoying and such a basic 'need'. Is there any chance this can be looked in to please?
how can it be that ctrl-A ctrl-C ctrl-V doesn't work in a MS app meant for professional use?
Caused be hours of lost productivity. Like a stupid have to scroll one page per 3 seconds.... up... auch... such primitive easy feature to implement.
This is an essential functionality! I can't even "select all" and copy/paste!
This is basic functionality and quite surprised it isn't already included.
It is very frustrating to have information that we can no longer easily use
That and a big handicap of the application
We used team as a trouble shooter community, and now we would like to sort those issue and treat them differently,
it is much more than nice to have
it's needed & essential for documentations
Would support that. Some chats on our side need to be archived and there is no way from Microsoft to perform that...
I have to take issue with the user who stated this is a tolerable hindrance. Anyone using both teams and a ticketing system will tell you they have been spitting teeth over this since teams was launched.
Come on Microsoft give us the basic cut 'n' paste or some sort of export conversation feature. We should not have to wait any longer.
This has been a tolerable hindrance for some time and is very frustrating at times, but not enough to quit using Microsoft tools.
Today, it was more than a nuisance. It prevented important reporting on the full details of a key conversation. There were too many entries to be captured and presented in professional way. This is not acceptable.
Hopefully, no one hits legal requests for information and cannot provide due to Teams' lack of functionality.
Please add this feature, as it is a basic tool that all other Microsoft applications have been able to provide for years/decades.
More than two years after the suggestion was opened, and still not implemented.... I agree this is a much needed feature. For example: we do not want to keep a channel within a Team after a project is complete... But we also need to archive the communications and info for future reference.
It is needed.
It is also needed because there is no Search. I could export and then search in the export (duh).

Come on, really? STILL NO COPY / PASTE? How can this possibly be promoted as a useable application without it? How many customers do you need to tell you to add this most BASIC of features?

I agree, many times we need to document conversations, just to be sure nothing falls through the cracks. I hope we can have that feature added soon.

Need this too to save community posts and shared links through Teams channel.
