Looking for an easy way to export personal chats from Microsoft Teams? There’s a few options available now, varying in cost and depending on your needs.

Option 1: Use Chat Exporter for MS Teams

We built this small app to allow you to export personal Teams conversations as CSV, PNG or JSON files. It’s only $3.99(USD) but you can sign in and download a sample file before you buy to see if it meets your needs.

Option 2: Use Microsoft’s API

Microsoft now makes available Export APIs for Teams that allow admins to easily export conversation data from Teams for paid accounts. Note that there is a fee applied to API requests to this API, so you’ll want to make sure you keep an eye on the requests you’re making to avoid getting lumped with an expensive bill.

Option 3: Export using Microsoft’s export tool

This option will only work if you’re using a free Microsoft Teams account. But if you are, you can visit Microsoft’s export tool and download much of your Microsoft Teams data including personal chats and files for free.
