Discourse for Teams is here!

Feel free to spin up a Discourse for Teams trial and enable the slack integration, then see what you can do to save transcripts of valuable conversations in discourse. Transcripts are all saved in a single post.

You can create an invite link and post it to your slack to ease the transition. Ideally you’d then set a deadline for new conversations to start happening on Teams and close the channels on slack except for ephemeral contact, as Rafael and Justin are saying.

Note there is nothing public in Teams - if you need public discussions you will want to look at Discourse, not Discourse for Teams. There are also other differences. See Comparing Discourse for Teams with Discourse.

That’s a clever way to move people on free level of Slack over to Discourse for Teams! Archive slack conversations and fall in love with Discourse for Teams. Well done.

Is there a way to migrate from Microsoft Teams?

Hi Nahled! I don’t believe there is a script for migrating from Microsoft Teams, but of course it’s quite possible to plan a move from Microsoft Teams to Discourse for Teams or to use them side by side. It’s not uncommon for folks to use Discourse for Teams alongside other tools.

Feel free to reach out to us directly at support@teams.discourse.com and we can talk more about your specific use case.

Hey Tobias, are there any migration tools for Google Currents (formerly known as Google+ for G Suite)? Our enterprise users use it very frequently, and it is very important to us.

I have heard good things about migrating ancient Yahoo Groups (which I just learned is shutting down) and ancient Google Groups to Discourse for Teams. I don’t know if you previously had migration tools before Google+ shut its doors to consumers in early 2019, or even after that when enterprise users still had access to the G suite version before they were then migrated to the nearly identical Google Currents (just a renamed version of Google+ for G Suite). G Suite was changed into Google Workspace recently, and we are finally fed up with Google, which is why we want to migrate all of our Google data from Google Currents to Discourse for Teams.

For comparisons sake, here are the links.


I hope that you can find a solution for us. :blush:
