How do I delete?

I have bogus messages from when we created program. Also I have exported a time-sheet to excel and can't delete or replace with new one.

Hi, you can delete things by clicking them to get into the full view of the item, then click the "X" button up in the right corner of the item. 

Then you'll delete the item.

Hi! I want to delete all my direct messages, which i sent to my contacts in Podio. How to clear message in Viewed and Sent boxes?

Hi Islam! It's not possible to delete messages - they will just go to your viewed/sent box and will stay there for your records.

It would be very useful to be able to delete messages!. Why is it not possible?

Hey Søren,

It is simply the current behaviour of the inbox.

When you view a message within Podio it will be removed from your "first inbox" and moved to the part "viewed". In this way you always keep your inbox clean and empty and can see old and viewed messages in "viewed".

You can learn about how the inbox in Podio works here:  https://help.podio.com/entries/21665103-managing-notifications-in-podio

Why isn't there the functionality to delete status in the activity stream? Have a post every time an action is taken is smart...but honestly, for adding apps, etc it just clouds the stream! Is there a way to do this that is not obvious to me? Thanks, Chloé

Dear Sara, I have to agree with Søren Lykkeager 's  comment. It would be a neat thing change the behavior of the inbox and allow users to delete unwanted messages. I like to keep my inbox uncluttered too! Has that changed since January/2013?   (fyi cc @natefreedman)

Out of curiousity, what's the rationale behind not being able to delete messages?

Just want to add in my vote for the capability to delete messages.  I have no way to know which messages I need for my archives and which are just cluttering up the viewed inbox.  I can leave the conversation if I didn't create it, but that doesn't resolve clearing out the messages that I have initiatied.

regarding deleting something in the stream: I just made a huge (newbie?) mistake. I thought that the delete button will delete the stream entry. sounds logical, doesn't it? after clicking I got a message like "really delete content...?".

I did not think that i'll delete the whole corresponding project, which happend!

please remove this delete button in the stream. i know it's just a matter of days until the next employee will click it without knowing what she's doing. very bad usability, by the way.

Hey Guys,

Thanks for sharing your vote and comments. Just wanted to share a bit of our thoughts and rationale to help you understand why it is currently not an option to delete messages. As it (the message) would be deleted on both ends (since it's a conversation and not separate messages like email) the consequences are a bit bigger when deleting. When deleting you would also delete the message in the other end (your colleague's message for example).

So far haven't heard many that wants them to go away (thereby losing search etc.), but we are monitoring this closely and might decide to offer the option in the future :)

Thanks again for sharing your feedback.

I don't think those messages necessarily need to be deleted, but it sure would be nice to have a "hide" button in my mailbox, so that I could not see that particular message. If you make it visible/not visible then my colleague could keep it in his queue and I could hide it in mine. Then you could have a "see hidden messages" option so we could recover them.

Removing messages would be great for people who are no longer part of a project or organization. I have someone who is no longer part of the group, but I have to look at their emails, activity - and I just want them gone! I've removed them from the workspace but their ghost still lingers everywhere and I can't get rid of it.

Well, I think that the ability to delete unwanted messages should be availaEspecially now that the messages structure have been changed a bit... There's no "first inbox" and "viewed" anymore, now it's "Unread" and "All"... It would really be a winner if I was able to delete any message/conversation that I don't want to keep anymore from my "All" messages list.

+1 for being able to delete messages. At the very least an archive function to get them out of sight without deleting them from the recipient's feed.

To delete a status, open it message... click status, then it'll give you the option to delete.  ( :
