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?
We are currently looking at bringing the features of the Wrangler plugin into the core product to solve the use cases of:
1. Moving a message or thread to another channel
2. Attaching a message to an existing thread
You can follow progress here as we start design soon: https://mattermost.atlassian.net/browse/MM-35848

We're happy for the Wrangler-Plugin (https://github.com/gabrieljackson/mattermost-plugin-wrangler). Unfortunately, it doesn't allow to forward messages to direct/personal channels. However, this is a crucial feature for an efficient internal communication. Therefore: Please add this feature!

Reviving this. This is a crucial feature that is missing in MM.
Here is a plugin that can be used: https://github.com/gabrieljackson/mattermost-plugin-wrangler
It seems that this will never happen.
I think everyone need this, message forwarding is the main feature in messengers :)

Some news about this feature ?
It would be so useful !
Yes, please add this feature to move a message into another channel
We use Mattermost for faster inhouse com and have many "older" users that are not so familiar with modern messenger communication habits. They are quite ambitious, but often post in the wrong team/channel and I am expected to deal with it. Such possibility would make my life as Mattermost admin a lot easier!
There are many people who post to town square. I want to move messages for organization.
Yes, please! Need this feature very much!

We really need this feature. Copying and pasting, aside from being slow and inefficient for multiple messages, also makes us lose track of the original poster of the message.

Very important feature for corporate use.
Vladimir Kopylov commented
It's definitely a must have feature, our team really misses it!

Forwarding messages like Telegram - killer feature for corporate chat!
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.
