There were a couple of other "archive conversation" ideas but the specific request I did not agree with.
We need a way for (minimally the team admins/owners) to be able to send a conversation to an archive so it's out of the way yet still searchable by team members in case someone is looking for rationale for a past decision, etc.
This was on the MSFT Teams support site and I think it explains clearly what teachers are looking for:
Need Better clarity / functionality around archiving or exporting channels / threads
I understand that Teams archives for retention purposes, but we need to have the ability to archive for organization purposes channels associated with projects that are complete. We don't want to set up a new "Team" every time there is a new project, as typically the same "Team" works on multiple projects. Instead, it would be great to be able to archive a Channel, however keeping that Channel as part of the searchable/indexed materials (so that a user could later keyword search for items in an archived Channel).
