Delete bot messages
With the Polly bot, sometimes a member of one of my Teams will make an error while writing out a poll. Currently it is not possible to remove this poll, or, as far as I can tell, any message that is created by a bot.
It would be great to be able to delete messages created by bots.
The ability to delete Bot messages feature has been added to the backlog. Thank you for your feedback!

My last employer was using MS Teams (years ago when I voted for this functionality), my current employer uses Slack. I can't believe such a basic feature like deleting a message when you're the admin still hasn't been implemented THREE YEARS after it was requested. Honestly, even free slack is better than MS Teams.
I had recently experienced this (never thought I would), but I get why it could turn folks a bit sour. The guys responsible for the bot, managed to engineer ai that's fair and obnoxious at the same time. My recent research for this also involves a Minecraft video of all things (it goes as you'd expect it to). Please Fix..
Please solve this. Its ridiculous that we are unable to delete posts on our channels. As administrator for a channel I'm unable to delete a poll I created accidentally.
There is no way to delete a poll from teams - Please fix this.
Same for me:
"Complete agree. The functionality did not work for me and the form came out complete wrong in a channel with over 24 members. Quite embarrassing and there is no way for me to delete the form.. This should have been included in the initial solution!"
It is really ridiculous that we can't edit or delete a poll!!!
Please fix this

Where is Microsoft on this issue? There has to be a simple solution to this problem. Just let us delete anything we want or at least the postings from Forms.
PLEASE RESPOND MICROSOFT! BUELLER...BUELLER
Its been over a year from this last post from - Warren
Where is the Microsoft team at with this ability for team members to do? bot messages in posts NEED to be removed.
We also really need to be able to delete messages from the flow bot!
When will this function be implemented?

Go to Teams admin page, create a policy for owners to be able to "delete sent messages", wait 30 min and than you can remove it as owner. Cannot be done as normal user. This worked with the Forms bot, should be ok for Polly as well
Same problem. I created a Polly poll in my general channel and I can't delete/remove it. Any solutions yet?

The last message from an admin was 15 months ago. Maybe time for an update?

I created a Teams Flow to post a message as the Flow Bot, but there was an error and it posted to the wrong channel. I didn't realize I could not, as admin, delete a message from a flow bot. We need the ability for a Team Owner to delete a Flow Bot message. Thanks.

This has to be resolved. Owners should be able to delete all (I mean all) bot messages.
I dont know if this is the same topic, but I constantly get chat notification from a form that have ended and is also removed. Is it possible to turn of this notification problem, starts to get annoying...

as a team owner, all messages in the channel can be deleted. That only has to be allowed in the settings of the team

Hi, This possibility to delete accidentally created polls is urgently needed.
Please fix this to a more user friendly version where its possible to delete misstakes.

Deleting bot messages should really be possible in my opinion, please add this feature.
