I would love it if Discord would consider adding functionality to export unformatted or minimally-formatted text logs of chats or IMs (particularly if one could select a date range to export from!).
I think the indexing feature is lovely, but particularly with how many different ways Discord is leveraged to connect people, I've been surprised that the feature of simply exporting the text of messages exchanged between people isn't present.
When I want to go back to something my friends and I were talking about, I'm hampered by the fact that we can only have 50 pins per IM. I also find it hard to view message history when new messages continue to come in, which pushes the user's view to the bottom of the page. Message history view is helpful for quickly referencing, but if you're trying to reread or take screencaps of an entire conversation, it's very difficult to use for that purpose.
Text exporting and aggregate message log viewing is a feature that Trillian and AIM offered long before Discord took off, and I think it would help to assist in locking down the IM market for Discord. Thank you for your consideration!
