    A manager or so should be allowed to delete, either inappropriate comments or simply some topics not intended for some audience (junior staff i.e.) as might confusing them

    Yes please! Sometimes the staff use the messaging for none business items and I want to either delete the message all together or be able to stop allowing comments on that particular group message. Some having a manager have the ability to "turn off" messaging for a group message would be helpful too!

    Administrators should have the ability to delete unwanted group chats. Employees have used the app as a social chat and some may be offended with comments that have been posted.

    If this is implemented I believe Admins should be able to see a history of what was deleted to better moderate chat between coworkers.

    Why do they keep insisting on not allowing delete? Why is it Microsoft's new policy to keep everything that is said? I don't like it and neither does our executive staff.

    Option to delete or moderate chat messages would be highly welcomed.

    This function would be handy, as during the set trial and set up of staff hub, an employee posted a picture to the group chat that some would find offensive.

    Would be nice to have the ability to *DELETE* messages that are not relevant. What's the point or archiving if its un-necessary

    Want to remove old messages from the page to clear and find messages quickly.
