Hi team,

 

I'm facing an issue with the chat messages in teams. I created a calender invite in teams and conected a team and channel. After creating the invite, there was an automatic message put into the channel that I invited for that meeting. Unfortunately I used the wrong channel by accident. I deleted the calendar invite, but the chat message still remains and even an additional message was created by the system about the deletion of the meeting. I was able to delete the initial chat message, but the second one, about the deletion of the meeting, I cannot delete. Is it something the admin can delete?

Thanks in advance for your support!

 

Best Regards

Markus

Hi @markus83 

 

Unfortunately this seems to be a Microsoft Teams Product Limitation. I re-produced the issue in my organization environment and I was successfully able to reproduce the issue. For me too the message which was posted after cancellation of the meeting was not getting deleted.

 

I would recommend you to open a User Voice Request for the changes in the Teams Product for the same.

 

With Regards,

Hi @Satish2805,

 

thanks a lot for the reply! I was afraid to hear that, but thanks a lot for checking this out.

For next time I will check the channel twice before continue.

 

Regards,

Markus

@markus83 I have this issue as well. There is sensitive information in the meeting name that should not have been posted there. Even as an admin I can find no way to remove the cancel message. A real shortcoming.

 

I'm contacting Microsoft Support and will report back if I gain some insights.

@markus83  Support confirms that this is not a current feature. I created a request here: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/41579932-remove-deleted-calend...
