Hi @PrashanthKasula There is a past post in this community that may help address your request: Migrate chat history Teams - Microsoft Tech Community


You can also make a feature request at the Teams feedback portal.  There is already one there that may be what you're looking for (if not, feel free to create a new one and others can vote on it): Enable import / Export for data migration between tenants · Community (

A bit expensive small and mid size organization cannot afford

Is there any free tool or proceess



Sure I understand. 


Not AFAIK, I mean I have been migrating Exchange and SharePoint more than 10 years, for example when mailbox migrations used to manual and required physical migration of PST files over SFTP servers, doing exmerge and the like: I can honestly say having personally moved about 1/2 million users to 365 in my career that a migration tool is necessary to automate the process, ensure the fidelity of the migration, but also support in case anything goes wrong with the tool. Migration tools are quite well known for having errors. 


I hope you find something out there, or somebody else suggests something which fits your needs, however I would go back to the clients and say that is the price for ensuring that the data is safely moved over without issue, a proven tool with hundreds or thousands of migrations already conducted. 


Best, Chris

I would recommend Apps4Pro Migration Manager to migrate Teams chats. This is the only migration app which does real migration of chats (not conversation history folder alone, users can see the chats in Teams post migration).

Will the migrated chat appear on the destination as READ or UNREAD message?@Santhosh Balakrishnan 

@VivekPrabhu The messages will appear as UNREAD in the target.

I highly recommend using Altosio for migrating private chats and direct messages between Teams. This is the only solution of the market that does not require the end user intervention or them entering their password. The migration is seamless without the hassle of the end-users.
