Any message, any chat, - in channel, personal ones and in particular activity feed items should have this option, - all GTD activists will be happy!
This is still being worked upon. I hope to have more details in the next couple months.
Please know the team is actively working on this feature.
Due to prioritization of other work-items this has been moved to the backlog. We will update when it is being actively worked on again.
Thats is sad indeed. Can we have at least some workaround ? (export/import tool for chats ?)
Hi any progress on this topic ? If you have postponed it, simply state it, we'll plan accordingly... thanks!
any hint on timeline ? We want to reorg some things and are waiting for this feature. A very rough estimate would help, - say, - Q1 2019 or Q2 2019 or later ? Thanks a lot!
any preliminary date ? I have tons of valuable chats splattered all over the place I'd like to merge under one team :-)
Promoting channel to a team would be awesom.
Also merging Channels: say, I have 2 channels, with topics sales and sales_frankfurt and I want to merge them into one which is sales.
I'd like a function that copies all notes, files, chat automatically.
I can do that manually of course, but it takes time
Still in the works, no additional details are available yet.
We acknowledge the customer demand for Private Channels and have been hard at work on it. Private Channels is currently in preview with a select group of customers. We expect to release the feature to the public later this Fall, and will update here when we are starting to roll out to all customers. We appreciate all the feedback you have provided to us on this forum and thank you for your patience.
This request is now being reviewed by the feature team! I’ll keep you posted as to the future decision.
its quite easy to merge documents, one can move also onenote notes, but the pain point is chat discussions: there is just no option to take those over into another channel of another team. and this is necessary, if there are valuable threads in the existing chat and I want to make a reorg/cleanup.
A tech feature to export whole chat and reimport it elsewhere would do it too. Such a reorg is handled by admins in most cases anyway.
that kind of webpart would be awesome!
our use case: we are relatively small consulting company(ca. 500 consultants), and we would like to use Teams chat for "outer circle" information recipients(Yammer candidates usually) as well as for the "inner circle"(project teams, departments, etc): Advantages would be:
- same mobile app, same entrance point for all work related communications and info flow.
- Teams "visibility" from SP sites and vice versa
I do understand Microsofts concept of separating teamwork chat and global, company-wide chat, but our consultants have very small "time windows" to catch up with internal matters, - all the time and attention is towards our customers.
Thanks for following our suggestion to vote this up on SharePoint. It worked! SharePoint has confirmed that they have already started working on this and I’ll be getting an ETA from them after the holidays. -Suphatra
This item is still in the works.
Also, thank you for the additional feedback. I will circle back to the feature team and provide a new update soon.
our use case: we have a central doclib in Project center(an SP site), containing all customers and their docs.
and we create teams as collab spaces for each customer.
Ideally, we would like to embed as teams tab only that part of doclib mentioned above, that is relevant to the collab team, and work on it. So the solution proposed above, - allowing to embed a specific view, most probably wouldt fit.
another alternative that would help is an option to add folder or specific view rather than whole doclib with the feature "Add Cloud Storage".
I'd like to see conversations SUBJECT in saved-conversations prieview on left window, ideally in bold. Now I see Team, channel, poster and the beginning of the post.
We are still considering this feature for future releases, and will continue to update the status when it changes.
Dear Suphatra, i found various similar requests, so I will post my comment here rather that opening a new thread. Its about moving conversation history, - chats, - from one place to another, or export/import thereof. We have started Knowledge exchange initiative in our company, using Teams. Works fine, search is fantastic, integration options are great and user acceptance is MUCH higher than classical Sharepoint. After a while, we've noticed that we created too many teams and it would make sense to merge some of those. Or to rearrange. Everything is doable manually, - files, tabs, connectors...except of chat history, - I cant find a way to move whole history of chats from one Team to another. Maybe you can recommend some technical workaround via API ? The point is, we have valuable knowledge residing in chat, announcements, statements, etc...and we dont want losing it, but a rearrangement is necessary from time to time.
I dont expect a comfortable "move" button, since I understand the complexity of this task, but f.e. an export into external file and then import in other teams channel ? With prerequisite that users on sender and recipient part are same to have a 100%match?
thanks a lot
We’re currently working on defining a compact mode experience. I will post more details when we have more to share.
We are working on a better experience in Teams when a user is not connected to the internet. No timeline to share at this point, but we will keep you posted.
Maybe one could define nr.of MBs for offline cashing, thus having all conversations readonly in offline modus up to particular moment ?
