Move content to another topic

Zulip makes it possible to move messages between topics. This is useful for keeping messages organized when there is a digression, or the discussion shifts from the original topic. You can also rename a topic.

When messages are moved, Zulip's permanent links to messages in context will automatically redirect to the new location of the message. Muted topics are automatically migrated when an entire topic is moved.

Organizations can configure which roles have permission to modify topics. See the guide to message and topic editing for the details on when topic editing is allowed.
