We want to reorganize a team that has too many Channels. 

I can reorg the files in the related SharePoint Site and add links. I can't find a way to save the Conversations (Posts) in each channel.

The users will be OK with a file to keep the Old Conversations (Posts). I would rather make a SharePoint Discussion out of it.

 

Any idea?

Hi,

 

There is no native tool to do this yet but you can use this script to backup a Team to files, so you will get your conversations in file format instead. There is also a recreate function that you might be able to use (maybe with some modification).

There is also a Uservoice about moving conversations to other channels that you should vote for if you think it is a good feature, even if Microsoft already answered that they are working on this function.

@Linus Cansby This looks promising I will give it a try.

Thank you much
