we have often 1-2-1 teams meetings.
sometimes we need to invite an 3th participant.
but the 3th participant can also read the chat history.
also when we forget to remove him from the meeting he can also participate the next time.
The meeting shows up in the chat window of teams.
is there a solution to invite participants without any chat history and after the meeting is ended automatically remove them?

@Boxdoy At this time it isn't possible to delete a chat but it's on the backlog at least https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/33535006-delete-private-chat-t... Vote on it to stay updated when status changes.
What you would have to do now as far as I know is to delete your own messages which isn't the most handy approach.
One thing you can do about the other issue is to "end the meeting" for everyone when it's over https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/end-a-teams-meeting-for-everyone-in-attendance-5051fa72-8... in combination with a lobby settings that fit your needs, for example "only you" can bypass the lobby. Meaning you'd have to let the participants in when the next meeting starts so they don't automatically enter https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/change-participant-settings-for-a-teams-meeting-53261366-...

@bec064 thanks you for the quick response.
when i choose for end meeting the chat is still available for all the participants.

@Boxdoy Yes, in that scenario you would need to manually remove the individual I suppose. Haven't tried if the chat is still available for them though (as it is when one choose to leave).
If no luck perhaps it's better to have the "sensitive chat content" in a separate Window.

@Chris Webb See this conversation started by Chris Hoard and the reply from Laurie Pottmeyer https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-teams-ama/end-meeting-completely/m-p/1371040
When I voted for the named UserVoice it was only like 2-3 votes. It still needs to be pushed up though, but feels reassuring that the product team are aware of it.
@Boxdoy In other words you have a couple of options as mentioned above but I understand it isn't optimal right now.

@Boxdoy Hi, just want to send a heads up about adding a third person to the chat.
As mentioned you have a couple of configuration options and you have this as well when adding a user to the chat.
