This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Delete messages and files
Trying to Delete Messages and Files in Hipchat. I have logged in as admin but am unable to see any History buttons as referenced by the documentation. Anyone have a screenshot or video they can share?
Based on the document you referenced, I'm thinking you want to delete messages from history. The Delete function is a bit hidden, sorry about that. Here is a video that should answer your question.
Hi Michael, any chance you can edit the summary line of your question to make it more discoverable by other people looking for the same info? The label you added for "delete messages and files" is great, and maybe that is good enough. But perhaps others in your same situation will find the question and answer easier if it the summary was ~ "How do I delete messages?" Not even sure it's possible to edit the summary line though. Thanks!
No Problem. Updated.
Thanks for the screencast. Works great!
But that is a really really really terrible user experience.
I should be able to do it from the main hipchat window using the '...' next to a message or some other direct way to either delete or edit a message. Having to search to bring up the message and then go to another history view is really cumbersome and non-intuitive.
Is this REALLY the only way to delete a message? I mean seriously? I would really encourage you to look at Slack's message delete capability and attempt to copy it somehow. Because wow, this is nearly unbelievable.
Not only is the Delete function hidden, and requires too many steps to reach, but it doesn't work properly.
I use the Linux app for HipChat.... deleting a message in the browser history thing does not remove the message from the app screen. The only way to clear it is to close the app and re-open.
It's utterly stupid.
