How to export Microsoft Teams chats

Looking to export chats within Microsoft Teams? Exporting chats from Teams is an oft-requested feature, but at the moment there’s no out of the box functionality available for end users.

If you’re an end user

If you don’t have admin rights, at present your options are limited for exporting chats from Teams especially while using a work Office 365 account.

Export your Microsoft Teams chats into HTML, PDF & more.

    If you’re using a personal Microsoft account with Teams, you may be able to export your messages following the steps listed here.

    For work accounts, one option is to setup a workflow using Microsoft Flow to call the Microsoft Graph API and convert individual chats to HTML or a PDF file.

    An alternative is to call the Graph API endpoints to retrieve messages and conversations yourself as part of your own script/program, although that has a higher degree of complexity when compared to using a tool such as Microsoft Flow. These endpoints are also in beta.

    If you’re an admin

    The options are still quite limited, but you can try and use the eDiscovery tools available in Office 365 to retrieve messages from channels.

    Microsoft Teams training resources

    So your team is looking to start using Microsoft Teams as a form of internal communication? We’ve compiled a list of the best Microsoft Teams training resources for getting everyone up to speed about how to make the most out of the service.

    While this list is far from conclusive, many of the resources below cover end-user and admin training, while some are more targeted to one scenario or the other.

    Microsoft training

    Free, Microsoft Training

    If you’re looking for the best free training, it’s hard to go past Microsoft’s official training resources. Microsoft has created training for admins and end-users.

    And if reading guides isn’t your thing, they even run free instructor-led sessions that anyone can sign up for, and run on a frequent basis.

    Microsoft Teams essential training

    Paid, LinkedIn Learning

    One of the most-watched Microsoft Teams courses on LinkedIn Learning, this course will run you through the basics of setting up a Microsoft Teams workspace.

    It then dives into incorporating the best of Teams functionality into your team’s workflow. A quiz at the end of each chapter helps recap what you just learnt.

    Mastering Microsoft Teams Training

    Paid, Udemy

    While this training was recorded last year, the majority of the content remains relevant when using Microsoft Teams. Heavily focused on end-user functionality, this course won’t satisfy those looking for admin tips.

    The course has some good content, and can be had at a more affordable price than the LinkedIn Learning course.

    Adopt & Embrace Microsoft Teams

    Paid, Amazon

    If a book is more your thing, and you’re after a book that covers integrating Microsoft Teams within your team’s workflow then Adopt & Embrace Microsoft Teams is a solid buy.

    The book covers integrating Microsoft Teams from a manager’s perspective, and includes chapters on getting to know Teams, through to some principles and best practices.
