Link Group Chats to Team Channels
Link Chats to Teams.
One click, back to the chat's related channel. Please no more of this Teams/Chat bureaucracy.
"Was that in a chat?" "Channel?" "Team?" "The microwave?"
Who knows really. Let's just create a new one!!!! Yay!
That's it. Super simple. So tired of digging for things. Fix it. Please. I can't go another week feeling this beaten down by Friday. Peace.
Yes the ability to link a group chat into a channel but maintain the group chat would maintain of team consistency. Channels are becoming a unused thing without this.

We frequently have important info discussed in chats with individuals or in groups. We need to be able to persist these and make them available to others, while retaining the group chat benefits. Having the ability to link or associate a group chat with a team channel would be a great solution. Even just having a URL link to a group chat that can be shared would be great!
Yes, please add this feature.
This would be super helpful and truly extend Teams' ability to "keep everything in one place"!!!

Working on a customer's needs in a chat allows us to quickly deliver resolution. Linking that chat to the customer Team/Channel is important as we manage multiple projects(Chats) for multiple customers(Teams). This would greatly improve Teams!

I have my channels broken down per customer. So, if I'm having a chat about the customer it would be very nice to be able to link the chat to that channel.
If you follow a team/channel (effort/milestone) and a conversation/thread as being organized thought and discussion on that milestone.
The ability to link a chat (somewhat organized and lively discussion)
allows that chat to occur (join users >20 in the chat to discuss and quickly talk about the sub tasks for the milestone)
Then the output of the chat communicated to the Channel in a thread.
Team Channel - Linking allows direct access to the granular discussion (decision making process) that resulted in the threaded task being completed.
Currently that discussion/chat can be lost as its not linkable to the Team/Channel/Thread(Conversation)

You should be able to arrange views and other work items in whatever organization you want.
