Is there currently a way to convert Channels under a team into its own team?

AFAIK, it's not possible...adding @Elaine Ansell

Hi Bill, there isn't currently a way to turn a channel into a new team.  Please submit this as a new idea so that we can prioritize along with the new features we are building.  Use the Feedback button on the left bar in the app or Microsoft Teams User Voice: http://aka.ms/teamspublicfeedback.  Thanks!

Hello! Has this changed? Is there a way to convert a channel under a team into its own Team at this point?

Thank you! 

Hi Tatyana, we have heard the ask and it is on our backlog of features to deliver.  If you haven't already, please submit feedback (clicking on the Feedback icon in the bottom right corner of your Teams client or via User Voice) so that we can properly reflect user demand for features.  We take in this feedback while prioritizing features.

Thank you for continuing to provide support.

 

Regards,

Elaine

hello,

are there any news on this?

Hello! Is there any new feedback on this?

 

Thank you,

I’ve heard nothing about this! The uservoice ideas hasn’t got any attention either! If it’s still on their backlog I’ll guess it’s way back

How about the reverse - converting a Team to a Channel. Can that be done?

No, but there is a UserVoice for this! Please vote!

Altough, its unlikely because a team is a LOT more than just what a channel is! It’s easy to move all files from other channels into one channel though or move the data to a new team!
Thanks for the reply. It looks like the files can be easily moved, but not the conversation. Live and learn, I guess!

Hello. I've been using Teams for a short while and I'm wondering if there has been any movement on this proposed feature.
