Good day, I am sure this has been asked before but I can not find anything on the web or Forum.

 

I have Channels that I want to move to another team. Eg. Team Name: Tender

Channel name in this team: ABC Pty

Other team: RFQ

 

I want to move the complete Channel ABC Pty from Tenders to RFQ?

 

How do i do this?

 

Thanks

Rob is correct!
Perfect Thank you so much for the fast response.

have a great day

Hello all!


Any updates on this enhancement?

The status is the same! No new updates! The person who was updating it has also left the company, but I hope someone picks that up l! The feature is in the works still I hope

https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16939708-move-channels-into-ot...

@adam deltinger 

Hope they do as this is such a no brainer, as the channel expands 50% of the time you want to create a team for that channel, and you can't move anything other than the files. disappointing.

@HerculesConsen I really love to see this feature as well!!!

@Rob Ellis , @HerculesConsen this should be a basic function of an application like this, any update?

Nothing new on the uservoice, no.
Any further updates on the progress of this functionality?
No further info AFAIK

I hope Microsoft moves on this, because this is the most in demand feature in my org. Use cases keep popping up. People are reluctant to adopt and create teams, because they fear they will have to manually migrate channels when our fast growing business changes. @HerculesConsen  I created an account just to bring this up. 

Good day, all.

Jip no movement yet on this feature.  I hope they make this a priority.  I can understand from a development aspect why this is a challenge.

But they have added other features that we have requested, at least that is a positive. 

have a great day. @3lizabuttons 

 

@HerculesConsen What can we do to get this pushed to development? I'm trying to convince my users to utilize this tool but not being able to move channels is a hard stop for me as the team I'm piloting with asked that specific question when reviewing the product. This should also be disclosed in the training videos as well so orgs know what the limitations are before they get started with implementation. 

@Jay26 the more votes it gets on UserVoice, the more resource gets assigned at Microsoft. To my knowledge it's something that will be looked at after Private Channels which has been a focus for some time, and technically becomes a pre-cursor to moving channels.
Creating some planned structure for your Teams up front should really remove too much issue here. For example pre-creating major departments or other structures in your business would allow users to choose the right space for their channels to exist, moving would only be required if something was in the wrong place the first time round.

@Steven Collier 

I'd like to second this idea, and would love to see support for this added. As much as we'd like to pre-define a structure, things can change, and requirements can evolve when starting a new organization. In these cases, having the ability to move entire channels between Teams would be fantastic.

Yes, this is much needed. One inch closer to the big slack migration.
