Edit Failed when trying to edit a post.

Occasional Visitor

Hello,

 

I have a user having issues editing some of his posts within a channel. I disabled editing on a test channel and I can't seem to replicate the error.

The user mentioned he can edit some posts and some times they cannot.

 

What does it mean when it's in red? 

 

Thanks.

Hi @Mouang Lee

Do you get the issue in the web client (https://teams.microsoft.com)?

If you don't and this is restricted to the desktop client, get the user to log out completely, clear the cache (https://commsverse.blog/2018/09/28/clear-the-microsoft-teams-client-cache/) and then log in again - see if that fixes it

 

I have also seen reports that attachments may cause this

Hope that answers your question!

Best, Chris

In my case, I was not able to edit a message until I removed attachments.  Once I removed the attachments I was able to edit the message and re-attach the files.

 

Both the web and native client gave the red "Edit failed" response.

 

I am a team owner and all permissions related to editing and deleting messages were enabled.  Toggling the permissions off/on did not have any effect.

@blszn Thank you for the correct solution.

I just ran into this on the desktop client, and @blszn's solution worked. How doe we get this fixed?
