Clearing all posts in a teams channel

Copper Contributor

Hi there, 

I am hoping someone can advise: we need to clear all of the posts in a teams channel to effectively start fresh. Is this possible some how as a team owner? If not, any other solutions that anyone would suggest? 

 

Thanks!

As an owner of the Team, you can delete any post within (regular) channels. There is no quick "delete all" solution though, you'll have to do it one at a time. Perhaps it's best if you just delete the channel and recreate it?

Thanks, @Vasil Michev, that is a shame, but good to know.

Hi. Why do I have to play computer and delete messages one at a time? I mean it is clear to everybody that this is a basic function that is needed, to delete all messages in a channel. What are the absolute basics not implemented?

While at the same time in the new Teams a complete bullshit is implemented: now the messages are all in the wrong order?

It's the general channel in my case and you can't delete it and recreate.  This chat is full of out of date covid work from home comments from an ex-colleague, and it needs removing, but I haven't got all day to take it out one comment at a time.  Please find a solution to this.

I'd also like to see a 'delete all' function for old posts without having to go through the ritual of deleting posts and comments one by one.
