Hi All, 

 

Do you know if it is possible to take a team and convert it into a channel then make that channel part of another team? Keeping all history of the team in the process?

 

Kind Regards,

No, unfortunately this is not possible!

IMHO due to how Teams have been designed, I don't think this feature will be considered for development.

@Ryanwright14 With the MicrosoftTeams PowerShell module, you could probably implement a close approximation yourself, and get the benefit of being able to tailor it to your specific needs.
