Respected Contributor

I have a customer that has an old yammer network that was abandoned for 6 years and they are getting ready to use it again. Is there any way to easily delete those very old conversations in the All Company group?

Hi, we have got a similar requirement.  Although all the old posts/groups have been manually deleted, they still show up if I run a full network export.  We also want to delete all the users in the network, as that is a bit of a mess... On the export, as well as lots of staff who have left and are not deleted, we also have quite a large number of users who show as a 'soft-delete', which includes both users who left many years ago, and current staff members who have never signed in to Yammer.  So as well as removing all the 'deleted' groups and content, we also want to remove all users...
