My organisiation has a requirement to completely delete the Teams chat history of leaving users.  My Google-Fu only finds a way to this manually - signing in as the user and deleting each chat line-by-line.  For GDPR compliance this is a bit of a disaster.  Does anyone have any recommendations?

 

Thank you.
