Hi all,

 

I've done a bit of research and it seems it's not possible, but I've found nothing definitive so wanted to confirm with the wider community! 

 

Is it possible for either a Teams Admin/Owner, or even the relevant user, to delete a received message from the Private Chat within Teams. 

 

I'm aware with the correct permissions a user can delete their sent messages in a Private Chat, but I'm not sure if they can delete received ones. 

 

EDIT: I should also note that I do not want to delete the whole thread. Only specific messages within it. 

 

Thanks in advance!

Past messages can be over 24 hours but only by retention policy. It’s not currently possible to delete individual / selected received messages in chats.
