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.
Thank you for your feedback! The team has finalized the designs for this feature request, and work is planned to begin shortly. We will share an update as soon as one is available.
Right now you can hide conversations, but deletion would be nice
I do not know how to delete a conversation please help
When you hold a message you can select to delete the message
Sometime I've got a full screen of 'message deleted'. So useless. If I deleted them, it's I don't want to see them anymore.
please create a simple option to delete permently chat items or make them invisable.(old)

It is making me so frustrated that "Conversations" are so visually messy. I don´t want even to use it with my students.

Is there any news about being able to hide conversation activity? it can be really confusing for students to have to read through a load of unnecessary info before they come to releveant info.
hi, This delete feature should be available as it was available in microsoft lync. Also we are unable to close the chat.

We deleted a conversation and dont want to se footprints of it. Why do i Need to see that "This message has been deleted" ? It it unnecessary and takes up valuble space in the conversation space.
How do I delete the information that "this message has been deleted" in conversations in Teams?
Even though i voted for this, you just need to Quit and relaunch Teams and the annoying "this message has been deleted" will be gone

+1 to help remove the noise within a channel hiding deleted messages is a must.

I would like the possibility to delete unimportant messages and only keep te important ones in teams.
Allow toggle mode to show/hide deleted messages. Most of time, do not want to see the "This message has been deleted" line showing. Maybe in rare case want to try restore some deleted message.
