Option to close\hide multiple chat windows
From the recent tab, if we could right click and an option to close\hide multiple chat windows. Precious seconds are lost for those who don't use keyboard shortcuts.
Another idea could be adding a checkbox when mouse howers over. This way we can quickly select chats and then close them at once.
I REALLY would like to be able to get rid of chats that are no longer relevant. I don't want to go thu a process to hide them (leave conversation, then hide conversation) I just want to right click on a message/conversation and never see it again.
This is clearly a pain point for users! Please address soon.
Having this feature is essential considering the number of chats I have during a single day. The sooner the better.
I use pinned posts but this only helps to a certain extend. A select/copy would be of huge benefit.
Please make this happen - for this reason alone I dislike teams - allow us to hide multiple chats at once. or make it easier to hide chats
Yes Yes tick boxes would suffice to Option to close\hide multiple chat windows AND Option to close\hide multiple Teams like a school at the end of a semester or year timetable change

Hide multiple chat windows is a must-have feature to make my Chat window clean.
Please add it in a future release.
If you cannot make the change, can you at least give a short cut on hiding one chat in Mac OS?
Make it like Skype, sign out and chats are gone/hidden whatever! I just hid 30.... one at a time!!!! And do this everyday! Really?? Way to much noise to look at that growing list all day long, to the next day and the next day.
Agreed, I'm involved in dozens of chats every day and hiding them one by one is just not practical. C'mon microsoft, this can't be so hard that it takes months to resolve.
I work for a really large company and we are moving toward using chat but this is a must have feature. Like the comment below I have 20+ chats a day and it is very time consuming to close them one by one. Please make this a feature to be able to close them all at one time.
Would love to select all and hide my chats.
Doing multi select to operate on more than one item at a time in a list of things is a pretty basic and common UI feature.
Not being able to do this with chats in teams is a big PITA. Seems like a bad oversight.

Very necessary addition that surely can't be hard to implement.
Adding my voice to this. Just spent several minutes hiding old chats, and more to go... waste of time. It was so easy to do this on Skype-- just close out of Skype, and old chats went away. Now I have a month's worth of chats and figured out they aren't going away on their own :-(
Sheesh. This is a no brainer. It looks like someone puked pixels on my page all day long. Distracting. Time consuming to clear out.
Need this functionality, as by the end of the day I have 20 chats open and i have to go to each chat to hide it. Signing out and logging back in still shows those chats. Need a way to hide all the chat at once.

Please give the ability to hide multiple recent chats from the recent tab. I am a team lead on a global desktop team for a large company. I am engaged in about 30 chats a day. By the end of the week, it takes me 30 minutes to clear my chats on a slow week. Please give us the ability to buld hide recent chats!
Using all my votes for this!!!
I agree, this is essentially what I had asked for as well. Just a select/deselect multiple option. Like Cntl+click in outlook
