And existing groups linked to channels cannot be converted either. It would be easy to link the channel automatically to "General" or better, to a second default topic called "Announces"
The best would be the possibility to select the destination Topic (fallback to General if not specified). Or an alternative could be to show the Channel like a Topic in the interface, if the discussion group has the Topics enabled, so no need to forward the messages to the group in this case. Or the possibility to define the topic associated to the single comments...
This is much needed. This would solve a lot of problems and is a quick fix.
I think this is an easy update but they didn’t think this is important
