Convert group messages to private channel


#1

Hi,

I noticed that Slack supports this feature:

Does Mattermost? If not, I’d like to recommend it. We have a group message that is taking on a life of its own. But how to move it to a channel and not lose the message history?

Thanks,
Pierce

Hi @ptyler! Thank you for reaching out.

Here is a doc with more information on this: https://docs.mattermost.com/help/getting-started/organizing-conversations.html#converting-public-channels-to-private.

Also, here is the CLI command tool that can be used: https://docs.mattermost.com/administration/command-line-tools.html#mattermost-command-move.

From what I can tell this specific functionality does not exist in MM currently.
