how to remove unlicensed people from group chat by powershell?

Occasional Contributor

hi gents,

 

i have a request to bulk remove unlicensed people from chat group, which is self-organized by random users

 

since unlicensed people are in many chat groups, manual way costs too much time, so i am wondering if there is a programming way to do the job

 

thanks for your ideas

Hi @StanleyHao

Sorry, nothing in the PowerShell cmdlets which point to being able to do this programmatically.

I would recommend raising it on uservoice (https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public) whilst it is still around in order to raise it as a new feature. As far as I know this is the only possible way is

Note - If someone leaves or is removed from a group chat, their messages will remain in the group chat history

Hope that answers your question

Best, Chris
