Delete Meeting Conversations in Chat
I don't want to keep meeting conversation times and history in chats tab. Please create Delete option. This shouldn't be saved at all. It is pretty silly to have a hide button instead of a Delete but you have delete button to delete the text in the conversation? I can also see security issues with this.
Please add Delete soon in chat for meeting conversation. Otherwise, advise on how to get rid of these saved meeting conversations. The hide option is not helpful.
We use MS-Teams for teaching purposes. In this environment it is an absolute necessity to be able to delete private chats threads. Pls. create urgently a Delete-Button to correct this situation

We NEED to be able to delete private chat threads! Please implement ASAP. It's crazy that this isn't possible. Also connected to security/legal issues. Please correct this issue, thanks.
Seconded again! Soon builds up a very cluttered environment when trying to use in teaching, and someone sooner or later is going to need to delete an offensive/inappropriate comment without burning the entire channel down and starting again!

I can only add my voice to this and have little to contribute over and above what others have already said. I use Teams as a teaching tool. Adobe Connect has the ability to clear the chat for any meeting. This is essential in a lecture/classroom situation, as the clutter that inevitably happens where the chat can not be cleared proves to be very distracting both for lecturers and students.
Wait, I can't delete a chat?!! That is crazy. What a mess.

We created a channel just for general information sharing. I created a meeting for my team for a week long virtual war room. Now I have half my team sharing information in general, and the other half still in the meeting chat from a month ago. Now I have a lead attempting to create another meeting that will further separate the team. I do enjoy TEAMS, but you need to have people who use this is the real world to provide feedback. There are far too many functions that are not user friendly and create serious productivity problems. So yes, the ability to delete chats is a MUST!
Hi, we need option to lock chat in a meetings, after it's completed. Users tend to chat all over the place. Users cannot tell the difference between:
Teams channel, Group Chat, and Meeting chat.

We also need the possibility to delete old Meetings.

Please add Delete. You are creating more work for us because of records retention. I will no longer use chat if it can't be deleted. I was really liking the functionality of Teams until I realized I can't clean it out and delete the chats. It's so messy. I thought the whole idea was to not have as much email retention to manage. Now it's better to use a 3rd party than the software our office already purchases.
agreed! please add Delete option. it will keep users more organized .. thank you.

I agree. Even just for cleaning up the many video conferencing tests that you make. I have plenty when I was just rolling out Teams. Recently, I had 10 such tests while working on the custom screen backgrounds. The Chat tab is littered with "Meeting Ended" posts, a number of which are just 1 minute long and only involving me.

I've recorded a conference call, and cause the upload to stream failed I can not delete it. Frankly, I would expect more from Microsoft. You can delete it only if it worked well. huh?

One easy way around all this, I found, is to create a new channel within the team and have your corralled chats and meets there - that prevents the clutter in your main chatline. Later you can delete the channel if you want - that deals with the privacy issue. Having said that, the ability to delete anything, anywhere would be helpful!
Essential for schools
Christiaan Schaafsma commented
Agreed, it is essential to schools not to see other chatconversations. At least a deletebutton

Problem is that privacy is breached if you don't delete the chats. It's hard this way to flexibly use the meeting when different participants can see things that weren't relevant for them. Please delete instead of just hiding or anything else.
This is needed badly, I have been using teams for weeks now and I need to be able to delete, NOT just hide my chats. There is many times where there is sensitive messages on here that need to go bye bye permanently.
It's ridiculous that you create a casual function like chat and don't allow people to delete. It gets confusing and limits the ability to have confidential conversations.
