We have several users who are bad at starting new conversations versus replying to a topic within a conversation. Do we have the ability to move someone's reply to a different conversation?

No, currently the only option is to allow them to delete their own messages, and tell them when they do it, to copy their message, delete it, then paste it as a reply correctly.

There are uservoice entries for this request already and they may have it on their backlog.
I would also add here that you might need to encourage your users to participate in conversations in a proper way so the chat threads don't become unusable

yes, that is what I am working on now, but we have a lot of old school users. Teams is a shift in thinking.

 

Thanks for the reply's!

Hi, have you guys thought about moving the "Start a new conversation" to the top of the "Conversations"?

 

Like Yammer?

I realize this is an old thread, but I am in support of the idea of allowing administrators or group owners to clean up channels so they remain clean and usable.  I get the training element and agree, but sometimes it's appropriate to just fix an exec's mistake than bother her/him with something that they might consider trivial.  I'm trying to drive adoption and don't want to deter the higher levels of the organization from participating.
