Delete Private Chat threads
This request is for the ability to completely delete a private chat thread. (Not hide/archive.)
Again, this was pulled out into its own topic because it is still under review and no decision has been made.
To recap what has already been completed from the other topic:
- Delete your own messages anywhere in Teams.
- Team Owners can choose if users can edit/delete in their tenant as well as choose if admins have the power to delete any message posted in public channels.
- The ability to hide your private chat threads (these are not the chat threads in channels, but the private chat threads that appear when you click the Chat icon on the left-side app bar).
- The ability to mute your private chat threads. (these are not the chat threads in channels, but the private chat threads that appear when you click the Chat icon on the left-side app bar).
This topic deserves consideration and separating out hot items is something we have often done. Please don't think of this as an attempt to diminish the ask, we know that many people want this.
Thank you for your understanding and feedback.
I’m happy to share that the team has started exploring designs for this feature.
PRIORITY - DELETE chat feature.
PRIORITY PLEASE -- DELETE chat feature. Clutter chaos!
I have several questions-
1. why delete option is not here to delete private or group chat (does not want to hide/archive)
2.should have direct option to reply back to specific message (should have 'reply to message' option)
3.why search history keeps in suggestion, its irritating (should have 'x' sign to remove next to it)
4. Where is conversation history getting stored like skype into in outlook conversation?
(like we close chat window in skype but conversation history still remain in outlook)
I can't think of a reason that is not already mentioned in this thread.. There is currently no way to clean up the chat historie, Hiding is undone when the other person replies or adds something to the thread.
Could you please give an estimation of timelines?
This option needs to be added immediately!
DELETE, DELETE, DELETE - Add this as an option PLEEEEASE!
Hiding a chat isn't helpful if the others in the chat post something, it all comes back...kind of a useless feature... Please add ability to delete threads in their entirety.
Why is this not an already implemented feature? I can't think of any other application where this is not a standard feature.
I have to echo what is said here - this is so obviously needed i an STUNNED that it hasn't been introduced! Unless it is being mined for marketing data by MS? I can't think of another reason.
Please add a delete button. This is absurd that Microsoft can't add a delete button for at least the chat sessions. After reading the overwhelming concern by users, as seen in your forum, I think that Microsoft should handle this issue sooner rather than later. Thank you.

We have stopped using Teams for many reasons (Number of video feeds etc...) and this missing feature is another one.
Users will get turned off from using this platform if this feature is not added.
this is not acceptable.
The only update I see is that you are "exploring" this as an added feature to your design? It seems like your not taking this seriously at all. Over three months? Come on!!

I can't believe that you guys have a gif feature but no delete button for conversations. What a joke!
Qué mierda con este Teams por no dar la posibilidad de borrar el chat!! #VamonoooosMT #JesusyMariaquetragedia
You don't have to use neural networks to implement this simple feature.
Please do this change on priority, its so embarrassing Teams dont have this basic feature.huh.Please provide a deadline as to when this will be implemented.
Please Hurry Up, It should be the first thing when you consider about a change, because its the basic common feature nowadays. Last update was on January and no updates after that sounds very very disappointing. Almost everyday I could see people commenting for this need and Microsoft Teams developers are very less interested in this change, how how and how disappointing. Please at least provide an update with your nearly six months of exploring design and progress of this change as well.
