I can clearly see how to hide one chat at a time, but is there a way to bulk hide?  By the end of a week i can have like 30 chats....would like to hide ones that aren't active often

I know what you mean but as far as i know Teams automaticly archives older chats. If it is a real problem to you you could use the commandbar to go to a chat fast or create a uservoice item at the teams uservoice https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/filters/new?status_id=3290671

Does anyone know if this capability is on the roadmap for a future release?  Thank you.

@Carol_Osborne   Agreed, bulk hide chats is feature which is overdue.

We need a Select all, and then allow uncheck for the ones you don't want hidden, the same way I handle cleaning up text messages on my smartphone.

Why increase our hand strain with all this unnecessary mouse clicking?
