Hi all,

 

I'm looking for a way to delete messages en masse based on some parameters. I understand that the messages are being saved in Conversation History\Team Chat. How would I go about manipulating these objects? Let's say I want to delete anything from before a certain date?

 

Thanks!

You would need to use retention policies for this:

Yeeeeaaah.. that thing that doesn't work? BTW, that's exactly why I'm trying to find a way to do it manually. According to MS, everything is powershell, so I'd like to know how to do it with it.
