Move chat to team
Sometimes we use chat at early then we join more people in the chat group then it might be manage as team so we need the chat history.
Can we migrate chat group to team and chat history move to general channel.
This would be so helpful a must for my organization. Would be great to not lose chat history.
Art Parnell commented
Completely agree. This is a must...
this is a good idea! we should implement this. Some random meetings will somehow become a 'permanent' workgroup meeting. and we need a 'teams' chat to follow up.
It looks like a duplicate of the following request:
very useful; I would like to move the chat to a channel of coiche, not just to the general channel

This would be very helpful
Should be able to organize chats into a specific Team like Outlook lets you organize emails into folders.

This functionality would be very useful. I think that the general ability to move chat and conversations from one channel to another, or from channel to chat, or chat to channel would make Teams life more orderly, making sure the subject matter and medium are in the right place.

Just run into the same situation. A Chat with several team members should really have taken place as a Team conversation. Wanted to move it so the content was then available to a wider team, but this isn't currently possible.

Agree that this would be a good idea with some controls.
Related: Convert "Teams Meeting Chat" to a standard Teams chat, allowing access to history. There doesn't seem to be a way to add someone to a Teams Meeting chat _and_ allow them to see the chat history. (Example: Meeting held during Asian business hours - there doesn't seem to be a way to allow EMEA or US people to view the meeting's chat "history".)

With some controls this might be a good idea - I wouldnt want a long running private chat to suddenly show up on a large team -

This is a great idea - and one we can definitely use. It goes well with the Agile concept of start small and iterate.
