  1. Move channels into other teams

    We would like to move a project (channel) between groups to keep the information, or be able to sort channels to our liking.

    • Move conversations to different channels

      If a conversation is started in one channel but gains importance to the point where the conversation deserves its own channel. Or a conversation was started in the wrong channel and needs to be moved

      • Search Public and Private Teams

        Users report its very difficult for their peers to find a team that they have created. This hinders their ability to increase team membership.

        ---

        Other users report its frustrating that they can't just search ALL the teams at their organization -- that only a small fraction are surfaced to them in their "Suggested" view.

        ---

        The capability to view Public Teams when you click on "Create Team" is great.

        HOWEVER... it would be a better user experience if there was a prominent button or link called "Search for Teams".

        Teams needs this discovery capability to avoid the duplication of…

          Unfortunately we hit some snags and this has moved back to “working on it”. The team is working to make some corrections and I hope to have a release date in the near future. I’ll keep you posted with what I hear.

        • Ability to Copy a Team

          It would be really useful to copy a team with all Channels and files/tabs associated, this way we could create a template and copy it when creating new teams

            We’ve heard your suggestions and are working on the ability to clone an existing team using a template. When released, if you were to click on Add Team, then Create a Team, you would get the UI pop up that prompts you to “Create your Team” but, if you look to the bottom of the UI you would see the option to choose “Create a team using an existing team as a template”! Once you select that option, you would be able choose which channels, team settings, apps, and members to inherit via a simple setup wizard.
            Look for this feature to release by the end of the calendar year! And thank you all for the great feedback. -Warren

          • Setting to choose if Private Teams should still be searchable

            We create our Teams as private by default since they are about the clients we work with. We are okay with everyone at the company knowing that these Teams exist, but we don't want them to be able to join them without permission.

            The problem we're having is that people keeping asking 'does a Team exist for client X?' and there is no easy way to answer that question.

            We'd like a way to search for private teams so that folks can request to join them.
