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!

New users who are testing the Forms by submitting sample polls can put random text and if by default you have different chat thread selected, that lands up there which makes no sense. You can't also delete it even if you are the Organizer, which sucks!

Alex is there any update on this yet?
Could you please give the possibility in Teams chat or channel to delete any published Forms or any other kind of objects? The creator should be able to delete every items his publishing.

Is there any update on this feature? Not just for Polly but also for Flow bot notifications. As Team Owner, you should be able to remove old posts which are no longer relevant and are cluttering up the feed.
Yeah, this is a bad bug. Just ran into this. Makes feature unusable for us.
Please fix this. Got this annoying Polly bot message that cannot be removed from feed.
Please fix this
4 years and this is isn't fixed yet? Yes fixed, because this is a UX BUG, NOT A FEATURE! Doesn't get as much vote as other "nice-to-have features" because this is a low probability, high impact kind of issue. Again, other "features" are nice-to-have--users will continue to use Teams even without it. But this UX BUG is a deal-breaker for many. Something wrong with your backlog prioritization!
How big is this backlog?? I get daily updates in Teams of things NO ONE needs or wants and something like this just never appears. Weak people, seriously weak. Prioritise your dev teams, most people don't care if you move the menus and mini pics if the app doesn't work well.
4 years and still no ability to delete bot posts in Teams? It would seem the solution is technically included with the “Allow owner to delete all messages” option, so the fix for this would just be a copied and modified version of a feature that already exists. Do we have any updates on how much longer this will take to do?
Please prioritise! I had to delete and restart a team because of this issue.
Same here: I created a Forms in a "wrong" Teams channel. Tried deleting it from forms.office.com, but it still reflects in the Teams channel.

I need to delete this bot post. Please help.
It would be good to delete a poll created by forms from a channel.
I created a test poll in my teams group and cannot delete it... that is very embarassing
It's embarrassing that you say it's fixed, while it's not.....
As others have said, it's ridiculous this can't be done. It's little things like this, of which there are many, that prevent me from suggesting we move workflows over to Teams. Other items I have backed in UserVoice also are still a problem.
At the very least, incorporate a warning that it cannot be deleted. That should take a developer no more than a few hours to implement and would be helpful for those trying to fumble through this program that is only just functional.
