Hi, 

Can we archive a Chat Thread message in MS Teams?

at this moment this is not possible but you could hide a chat see https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103/suggestions/33535006

Hi @Pulak2409

AFAIK, not currently. However, there is currently a uservoice open this one here

https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/36198352-ability-to-archive-ch...

Would recommend you vote to push it up the agenda. To note also, you can set retention policies on Teams

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/retention-policies
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/retention-policies-faq

Hope that answers your questions

Best, Chris

@paul keijzers Is there a keyboard short cut for hide. So that I dont have to right click and find the hide option everytime, i want to hide a chat. 

 

This will be really helpful. I like a zero inbox kind of a thing on my chat. And keep the action items on the top.

Hi @ashishpoddar

Unfortunately, not at the moment. If you do CTRL . in the Teams client then you will will get a full list of keyboard shortcuts. Hide isn't on there at the moment. May be worth opening a uservoice for.
