Message Deletion

Recommended Posts

Just a quick suggestion, or maybe even a question. 

 

There should be an option for users to be able to delete old messages from their inbox in the message center, rather than just "hiding" them. My inbox is flooded and getting overrun with very old messages that I can't do anything about. I know that I can hide them, but they are still there and I would like to clean it up.

What do you mean when you say that your inbox is flooded? I have thoudands of messages in my "inbox" and I have not ever got feeling that it is flooded because I can see only some of them at once. There is no difference whether you have 20 or 20000 messages in your inbox.

Just to precise: there's no mechanism for hiding old messages. The only thing you can do is hide "conversations", which hides all the messages, new and old, from a given user.

GDPR should not allow the saving of any messages if one party wants them gone.

I would like to have a search function for old messages. Scrolling thousands of messages to find a one special message is very time consuming. Fortinately, I have all of them in my email.

I've found the archiving nature of the messaging system pretty handy actually, the old messages aren't at all intrusive, and you can always get back to an old one if you need it - I've used this to track down a photo of the missing waypoint in a multi for someone once, one that had been sent to me 18 months prior.... I wish you could search through the old messages though....
