In Skype for Business, IM saves in a Conversation History folder. This would be helpful to have since I can't find saved chats in Teams.
I have just reverted to using skype for Business as this feature is not available in Teams. I use this feature in Outlook extensively to search for data since some exchanges of data occur via e-mail and some via Skype.
Why is it that the "new" tool that is the end-all for the "old" tool regresses in functionality. Really? How many decades is Microsoft going to pull this **** and still remain profitable? Saving Chat sessions to files, or whatever was built into Skype. This needs to get done for Teams. Period.
Definitely! I need to be able to share parts of conversations with people who were not part of the conversation, preferably whithout a rewrite in an e-mail.

Agreed. This would help track action items, etc. My company is going to start deleting Teams chats 24 hours after a meeting takes place beginning August 28, and having a copy somewhere will inevitably be necessary down the road.

Just like Skype Conversation History folder in outlook, Microsoft Teams should have this functionality to save chat as an email in outlook. this is needed to many reasons.

The Incident Response Team in the Privacy Department needs this feature for our eforms. It will provide needed confirmation of conversations in case we are audited by the Office of Civil Rights.
Please do the same for Teams Conversation History!!
Mary Ann commented
agree, we really need the functionality to automatically save conversation history to Outlook
This has been a long standing feature with Skype. No reason to remove a feature... add and improve, don't delete. Please fix Teams to save conversation history in Outlook (or in Teams) somewhere. Thank you.

Please place in teams the cntl-S to save conversations/chat to outlook!!!!!
What possible reason was there for taking this away?
It is super annoying to have to copy and paste everything.

I think Microsoft Teams should have chat history function like other app e.g. zoom that people can save their chat history and read it later. This is a useful function for creating detail data analysis after a conference/workshop has been completed, not only useful for our own business but also it's sometime required that we analyse chat for our clients own records.
Just wanted to let you know that I created an app to resolve this issue:
Modern Reader 365 Teams Edition by Cohorts.App
Collects selected channel and chat messages to one email and sends.
You may want to explore this and let me know if you have any questions.
p.s The app is in Beta version and will be in the app store in September
I need to save or print my chats because some of them are instructions. I also need to save or print chats messages on work to do from my supervisor or the team lead.

This was a very useful feature in Skype. Helps with documentation to fall back on.

Must be able to save the conversation in Teams. Should be highest priority to add that feature,
I loved how conversations in Skype were automatically saved in Outlook. Please add this feature in Teams or at the least give us the ability to save manually. It was a great audit trail and something I could also reference at any time later.

Important feature needed in Teams chat, we have to use the chat for various purpose eg in helpdesk ticket for recording purpose. it was possible in Skype but Teams must have feature too. Sooner is better!!!

As an IT desk support, this feature will help my department. Slack and Skype have this feature, which is why I've recommended them instead of Teams.
