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
This is pretty poor, we need the ability to copy a section of a conversation easily yet this functionality is crippled.Please fix ASAP.
Come on Teams - this is a critical feature. Skype at a minimum had a conversation history that auto-exported to Outlook.
How when you are recommending this to businesses would you not anticipate this as a needed feature?
We have been slowly moving to Teams from Skype, however once this glaring omission was discovered they have halted to roll out until they re-evaluate.
BTW - It is almost impossible to select and copy a whole conversation.
Should have stayed on skype
Having the ability to export as well as to search

This would be great and very helpfull
Have to export chat and pictures for documentation. Thinking about printing it and making a folder.

We are recording our Scrum meeting information in the conversation, so people could quickly reply on the today's work and collaborate.
We would want to export it when the project is completed, so we know if there was any decisions made during those project discussions.

This is a seriously needed functionality. I can not understand why it hasn't been implemented.
George Goosen commented
How is this not a feature?
Seriously, just a simple Copy Paste would even suffice.
Steve Labbé commented
I also need this functionality. I want to archive the conversations after the closing of a project for future reference.
Pawel Smolarkiewicz commented
Please. Even export to simple/basic text file would be very helpful
Even simpler MVP allow [ctrl-a] select all to capture all loaded text in a conversation
Stuart Ginns commented
This is a functionality that needs to be added into teams or a better workaround.
Would be great if it could be exported to PDF or Word..
I also need this functionality!
How many years and user requests are required to get this functionality added?!! Please, Please, Please provide conversation export functionality!
Or please provide us a workaround ...

The stock answer of "use Security and Compliance" to manage this is not acceptable. You have countless user stories encouraging the use of Teams for issue support. Lots of our folks want to export conversations around issue resolution to knowledgebases for reference later.
Give us an export to OneNote option.
Feature needed due to compliance and legal evidence

This is a much needed "basic" feature that should have been there natively; it was available in SFB, and I believe Teams is suppose to be an improvement to what we already have and used to in SFB...not the other way round. MSFT-TEAMS program manager, please we shouldn't be begging for this feature at all; I guess we probably going to stick with SFB for now.

Need this for managing internal legal cases. Going to roll out Teams early next year and the Legal team need a way to capture conversations and add them to case files in the form of an export.
A print screen is not always a viable option.
I want to point out that Microsoft is telling folks to use eDiscovery. This works perfect if the chat is a 1v1 or Teams Channel! It does not apply to group chats. I say this because you must do a keyword search and if any threads in the group chat don't have the keywords, you're missing a big chunk of the chat history/thread.
We need a way to export a chat directly from the Teams GUI (desktop or web clients).
