I've added Polly and am unable to delete a poll that I've posted - does anyone know how to do this?

Hi Alishia

 

I'm not aware of a way to delete a poll at present (unless someone else here knows how?), but it may be in the works for the future.

Good luck!

 

Cheers
Damien

Currently, Owners can delete Polly surveys but because the bot posts the survey instead of the user, the context makes it so only Owners with delete post setting on can do so.
Nice one buddy!
Thanks Christopher

I recently did a test bot poll using Forms. I went on to Forms, delete the post, but I am not able to delete the bot post. I am the owner of the teams site. 

@Christopher Webb I can't see the option to delete the bot conversation thread.  There was no delete option available.  

@Christopher Webb , actually never mind.  Discovered that a setting needs to be enabled on the Admin Centre.  http://windowspbx.blogspot.com/2017/09/microsoft-teams-user-tip-17-moderation.html
