I teach chemistry. Some time ago, I created a numer of channels (one for each subject containing several videos). The other teachers (same company) now also uploaded videos as well. So if you login to MS Stream, you see all videos. Now I would like to create a group (i.e. Chemistry) and move all my channels into this group. How can I do this?

Sorry we don't have a way for you to move a channel into a group.

 

Best you can do is create your new group (and channels under that group), and then change the permissions on the existing videos to put them into the new group/channels. Unfortunately we don't have any way to take bulk actions in Stream.

 

Or if you still have the original video files you might want to just drag/drop them onto the new group/channels to avoid having to change permissions video by video. When you drag/drop a video onto a group/channel it automatically sets the group/channel in the permissions section by default.  You'd still have to go in and delete the old videos as well.

This thread is a bit old, I just wanted to see if this was possible yet, I migrate channels to and/or from groups. Thanks!

@Marc Mroz still waiting on this functionality too.  Organizing videos in to appropriate channels and groups is a nightmare without:

1. Being able to move channels to different groups

2. Being able to bulk move videos to different channels

@Marc Mroz,

 

Hopefully this will change because this is simply a mistake in UI/UX. Please let the community know when Microsoft intends to repair this bug. The marketplace demands this kind of functionality, and it would be tremendous if Microsoft would commit more toward this end. Thanks and I look forward to your update.

@crwinchester I hope they come up with a fix for it. It's obviously desired by users. I don't know much about programming, but it seems like it would be a fairly simple fix. Having jumped into using Stream for work without having had much time to play with it and learn it first, I created channels. Now I would like to better organize them under a group, but I have literally have hundreds of videos in one of the channels and it would be quite the undertaking to move/reclassify them individually.
