    try this instead  ·  Suphatra responded

    Hey everyone! We have this already. Just click the ellipses next to the thread name and select “Hide”.

    Note that we cannot provide a “hard delete” due to eDiscovery and other legal reasons.

    Thanks,
    Suphatra

    @Suphatra- please provide additional clarification. Can an Admin force a thread to be hidden from EVERYONE involved? Otherwise, your team is missing the point.

    To express our use case in a different way:
    Employee A starts a chat thread with Employee B, C &D.
    In this thread, though it started perfectly professional, it devolves into a conversation that clearly violates company policies.
    How can an administrator close that chat thread and remove everyone's ability to comment or continue to view it?

    If it needs to be retained in cold storage to fulfil data integrity policies that is fine.

    It is not relevant HOW you implement an Admin's ability to close down a chat thread, remove it from view, and/or prevent additional participation. There are numerous options at your disposal (give admin the ability to forcefully remove users from a chat thread one at a time; the ability to remove all users but the admin with one click; the ability to "lock" the thread to prevent additional comments and hide it from everyone's view, etc)

    Right now you have a chat system where the Admin cannot do their jobs correctly, and all the MS Team keeps saying is "it is a feature, not a bug."

    This is unacceptable for business software.

    Steven M commented  · 

    The use case remains the same. If a chat goes completely off the rails (such as an employee gong full Jerry Maguire, or worse), admins NEED to have the ability to delete a chat thread entirely and make it inaccessible for the entire company. Hide / Archive is woefully insufficient. That this is even something we've had to debate/upvote for months is utterly absurd.

    working on it  ·  Suphatra responded

    Hi everyone, the engineer working on this item has left the company and we’re working on replacing him. I wanted to give you that heads up because the work has paused, which extends our shipping date.

    I really appreciate your patience as we work to get this back to actively worked on.

    Warren, when you archive a chat, is it hidden from everyone?

    The ability to remove a user from group chats (including meeting chats) is now available on desktop, and coming soon to mobile.

    How it works: A user can go to any group chat of 3 or more people and navigate to the roster and by hovering over any user you will see the “X”. Clicking on this will show a confirmation dialog. Then the user must select remove to remove the user. 

    What does everyone see: Everyone in the chat will see the control message that says “User A removed User B from the chat”. 

    What does the removed user see: The removed user will still have access to the chat history but will no longer see new messages after the point of removal and will not be able to compose messages or make any changes to the chat.

    Note: This setting is controlled by your tenant admin, so may or may not…

    How has this been pushed to the backlog? This is BASIC functionality!

    we have this!  ·  Warren responded

    There seems to be some confusion around how this works. First off the ability to delete messages is off by default.

    The IT Admin who setup the Teams environment will need to turn on the admin ability to delete messages. Once they have enabled the functionality, admins will be able to delete user messages.

    If your IT Admin as enabled it and you still are having troubles please let me know in the comments below.

    This functionality does not appear to exist inside of chats, contrary to Suphatra's statements. Admins cannot properly moderate chat threads.
