Move a message to another channel

Sometimes a user posts his message in the wrong channel. Deleting the message and repost is a simple solution. However, sometimes the message already contains replies. Is it possible (to make) to move a message including its replies to another channel?

    Sometimes user may need to forward messages from one person/channel to different person/channel. It would be nicer have forward option for messge.

    I ran out of vote so I could not upvote this suggestion but we also would like to see a plan to have this feature in the future.

    Today i have missed this feature, because i want to build an customer support Team. Inside this Team i create channel like wishlist, In Progress and Done. The idea was that customer can write into wishlist channel their wishes. Then we move accpted wishes in channel like In Progress and so on.

    Every modern messenger can forward messages. Why can't Mattermost do that?

    So that I can add on to this topic, I understand this is not implemented as of yet. I would like a feature that a Channel Admin can post one message to two channels simultaneously. ?

    Yes please, in our company chat sometimes people post messages in the wrong channel, so moving it to another is a must!

    I would use this every day as I have to forward questions/requests to my fellow admin. Forwarding should include pictures in the message.

    Getting notifications mail even after reading the messages which is sometimes pretty annoying...Otherwise all the features are fine

    Creating Reply or Forward messages to another channel is a great way to touch base with customers.

    Bugs in Mobile apps , like menu / add documents most of the time we are not getting notification . others are very good for team communication

    I agree with Pascal: managing channels such as moving messages form one channel to another, creating subchannels, merging... would be very useful

    It would also be good to be able "share" messages from one channel to another (kind of link preview), as this can also help people publicise the existence of other channels,
