Time limit for editing/deleting posts
We would need an admin setting to set a time limit for how long users should be able to edit/delete their posts/conversations.
Owner should be able to delete without a limit but members should be able to edit/delete for example for only 15 minutes.

This feature is really needed. There are people that change posts that are a week old and have 10 responses where editing does not make any sense at all. Someone could change the entire post and all the comments stay - worst case scenario.
A time limit (even of a few minutes) is a good start but especially no changes once replies have been posted!

I want to setup a bot to vote for this one. I would like to add a caveat....or unlimited time to edit/delete if no one has interacted with the post.

Agree, as discussed today in MS Teams workshop, this feature would be very useful, but I think it's better to have a shorter time frame for edit/delete a message. For example under 30s after sending the message.

I am very surprised that this feature is not already present in Teams. I agree with what the others have already said. I would also add the ability to recall a post within a set amount of time.

I agree. This feature is available in Slack. You can set a time limit to edit or delete a message. I would recommend a separate setting for both options.

I support this idea, except that the post should be editable only by the owner and too within a time limit (say 5 minutes). At present, we are not able to hold people accountable for what they post, because they can easily modify or delete a post that they made earlier.
