I don't know why I cannot edit a post once posted??? Even Facebook can. And I cannot delete, too. Eventhough I'm the one who create the team
I want to try to provide clarity on the current functionality because we find that sometimes people are unaware of the settings available to tenant & team admins. There are three different types of edit/delete settings, all of which are switched on/off at the tenant or team level.
1) Allow users to edit their own messages
2) Allow users to delete their own messages
3) Allow owners to delete all messages
Tenant level settings:
Tenant admins can update capabilities from the “Messaging” section in the Admin center.
By default, allow users to edit/delete their own messages is ON at the tenant level (and therefore the team level).
By default, allow owners to delete all messages is OFF by default in all tenants, except in EDU where it is ON by default.
Team level settings:
If edit and delete settings are enabled by the Tenant admin, team owners can also control the setting for their teams under Manage Team – Settings – Member Permissions.
I hope this helps, and would love to hear your thoughts either via email or comments on this suggestion.
Note: I have taken note of the request for owners to edit as well. (feel free to create a new suggestion for this one).
Allow user to edit their own comments.
In member permissions, we tend to set it so that members cannot edit or delete messages posted in the conversations section. Only the owner can delete posts.
However this means that an owner is no longer able to edit their posts without either temporarily switching on "Everyone can edit their messages" or having to delete an erroneous message and re-post the correct message. Would it be possible to include a separate "owners can edit messages" permission, similar to the "owners can delete all messages" permission?
You should be able to edit a post once you make it in Teams! Our school uses it and we are unable to edit spelling mistakes which is a problem.

It would be nice to be able to edit or delete your posts in Teams. Often you accidentally misspell something or forget to add something to your post and it does not allow you to go back in and correct it. This makes it hard for staying organized and getting the right information down.
