I just used Chat for the first time with my students. But I want my next period's class to not be able to see the chat I had with my last period's class. How can I archive the chat from my last class and not make it visible to my next class?
Hi Walt Wolfe,
Unfortunately, there is not a way to archive a chat session. The chat in Canvas is always available to all students in a course through the chat history. You can see more at What is Chat?. You can consider submitting a feature request at How do I create a new feature idea in the Canvas Community? or upvoting this one Delete All in Chat.
Thank you. My students are responding much more affirmatively to the Chat feature than they did to the Discussion feature. So, I was hoping to find a way to make the Chat more of a formalized component. I continued to use Chat for my second period class today, and I don't think it proved a problem, so maybe I am overthinking this a bit.
Again, thank you.
