Is it possible to moderate message/posts in HipChat? Edited

I would like to decide (room admin) which questions will be visible to all chat users.

I'm preparing a chat for all employees of the company where everyone will ask for a questions and the admin will choose which will be visible to everyone?

Hi Rafal,


I believe what you are looking for is not possible in HipChat. You can't select what words to be visible to the users in the room. It's a chat room so anything that was type will be visible to all user.


Additionally, you could try to use the 1-on-1 with a user that ask the questions and paste it the room if you wish others to see?


Hope this helps.

Hi Mohammad,

Thanks for your answer, If it's not possible, I think I try to create dedicated plugin.

Moderated chat it will be very useful option.

Hi, Rafal!

May we know what is the use case of a moderated room? Understanding the use case in more details could allow us to provide some ideas to achieve a similar behavior without needing to create a dedicated plugin.

For example: if the use case is to have a moderated room to announce certain information to the entire company, perhaps the usage of the RSS add-on could solve the requirements.


Hi Bruno,

Thanks for recommendation RSS add-on, but it's not what I'm looking for.

 Use case is easy, I'll try to explaine.

I'm preparing a live chat for all employee of the company with CEO. Each of employee can ask some question via HipChat posts.

But the admin of room decide which posts/questions will be visible to everyone.

Hi, Rafal!

Ok. Yeah... Hipchat currently doesn't support this specific scenario. Atlassian does have a tool which would be more suitable for this use case, though:
