Archiving and Hiding Previous Chats

Jump to solution

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  @wwolfe ‌,

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 https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-14904-75187841184 or upvoting this one https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/15845-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.
