Share someone else's post to a different channel (with credit)
I would like to be able to share a post that I have seen on one Team / Channel to a different Team / Channel, in a way that credits who made the original post.
Today in mobile app, it is possible to forward a post to another channel, but it looks as if it is an original post of the person who forwarded it (vs. the person that originally created it). What I wish it said was "Jane Doe shared Max Muster's post" and then below it would show the original post in a Quote feature.
To make this work, there would need to be settings in the team that enable / disable the ability to share posts to other teams / channels.

The feature of the web/desktop versions to post into multiple channels is not addressing the use cases. Also, as explained above, the reference to the original channel and author of the shared post needs to be visible. Ideally, even replies to the shared post would be visible also in the context of the original post.
This is exactly what Slack is doing and this behavior is exactly what is needed during daily business work in a highly collaborative organization.
In general, it would be nice to have the same features available in the mobile app and the desktop/web app roughly at the same time. Having to switch devices for certain use cases is really annoying.
