Delete whole conversations

(Hi Henning,)

I want to delete a whole conversation with students / colleagues and not only the messages from the students in group conversations or my own messages. This is not a possibility yet and doesn't already exists.  The only possibillity is to delete messages I send myself. That's not what we want. Hope you can add a function to delete everything.

    You should at least let users "archive" (vs. "delete") messages or conversations.

    Furthermore, a lot of our students complain about getting a lot of spam messages by their peers. An option to silence or leave group conversations or in the worst case block (non-teacher) users would be very appreciated.

    This is a frequent request we have from staff in our district, especially given the volume of messages sent during virtual/distance learning. I understand the rationale behind keeping messages for a paper trail...if there was the ability to more easily move conversations into folders so that it doesn't look as overwhelming for the teacher, it would be amazing!

    I completely agree, this SHOULD be included in the possibilities. At the primary school where I work, they like the send emoticons or curse words. Moreover, we can actually

    disable the chat between pupils, but when a conversation has begun it's impossible to prevent them from keeping on writing... this is really annoying .

    Hi, this feature is necessary! Whenever I got a message from a student or colleague with a task for me I want to delete the whole chat when I am done. There are 500+ chats and I am not able to find the relevant ones for my work.

    Why wait so long! Admin should be able to delete these messages, if some "bad" words have occured in the conversation.

    This tool is meant for communication and fast hand inn for students. Inn my world this means we should be able to delete. You could send deleted messages into " karantæne" for 30 days before it will be deleted for good!

    that is absolutly what we need and the admin should have the possibility to delete all messages which are older than for example one year.

    We do not want to pay for space, we cannot delete. All messages and attachments of deleted students are still in the space we have to pay for.

    We are looking at deletion of messages. We need to balance this with the need to have an audit trail in case schools/organisations need to see old messages. The issue is under review and we are looking to see how many upvotes it gets.

    Ce n'est pas bien de priver les élèves de messages car certains en profites, c'est leur choix , par contre si les abus de messages continues que sanctions s ' en suivent . Mr Bidault
