Export MS Team chats

Occasional Contributor



I am using a trial MS Teams, free of charge account for business. There are some chats that I need to export. Doing it manually won't be possible as the chats are long. Could somebody please advise me how to do it?


There is a guidance that I followed - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/export-or-delete-your-teams-data-1ed6ac68-5fb4-41be-9861-... - but it did not work. It exports into an empty file. The Microsoft support team told me later on that this works only for personal accounts, not business. I called the support team and they told me they do not provide support to the users on trial. Can somebody please help me?


Many thanks in advance!

Afaik you can’t. There’s APIs to export messages via Graph but don’t think that applies to Teams free
Correct, Teams Export API (in preview) requires one of these.
