🚀 NEW UPDATED VERSION – AUGUST 2020 🚀
⭐️ Version 2.0 works with the new Slack interface.
🚀 Easily avoid the “10k limit reached” notifications
⭐️ Your team has more than 10,000 messages in its archive
⭐️ Your team has sent over X messages past the 10k limit
⭐️ Upgrade to access your first X messages
⭐️ To see and search this channel’s full history, upgrade to one of our paid plans
⭐️ Direct messages from the other person can’t be deleted, nor in the original Slack interface
⭐️ Threaded messages aren’t supported
🚀 Did you know that…?
⭐️ Team Owners and Admins can export message and file history from Slack?
⭐️ And with Compliance Exports enabled the exports include messages and files even from private channels and direct messages?!
🚀 Security and privacy
⭐️ No data are transmitted to anywhere, ever. Message deleter for Slack is client-side only.
🚀 Warranty/uncertainty of functionality
⭐️ Message deleter for Slack depends on functionalities of 3rd parties therefore there’s no guarantee all features will work the same forever. Some features may be removed, some new ones added. At worst it’s also possible all features will stop working.
Completely free and with no ads

This does not delete my messages when they are in a thread,
Works fairly well. I needed to clean out our General channel because we were adding some external members to our workspace and the general channel had some internal messages. I paid for the admin version and the flaw I ran into was that it wouldn’t delete thread messages. (It deleted the main messages, but not sub-messages, it would get ‘stuck’ every time there was a thread). I had to pause the process and manually delete the messages in the thread. Luckily it didn’t take toooo long, but for $50, I expected it to automate the whole process.
Voltou a funcionar!
pro tip: zoom out to 25% and/or use “custom page zoom” to make it auto as possible. may burn your cpu and memoy though.
It works for me (free version), but it’s painfully slow. However, slow is better than the “not at all” option offered by slack themselves, so thank you for this extension. We used it to clean out the #general channel (which my group used as the main chat channel.. I know, bad choice) to add another team in on the server. Fortunately a small group we are, so we each went through over a couple of hours and scrolled our way through the deletion.
Free version is useless, paid version is not far behind and a rip off. Just use completely free, highly customizable open-sourced `slack-cleaner` from Github.
it’s not working. it is fake
Unfortunately it doesn’t work. It says deleting messages, but nothing happens. How i can solve this?
It was ok,
It requires the messages to be in focus to delete it, so its not automated.. you still have to scroll through your entire channel history..
I guess it saves a bunch of clicks,
It does not really work for me.
I tried disabling all other extensions and reloading the slack page multiple times, scroll the page so my messages are visible… but nothing.
If I push the “Delete My messages” button, it start flashing pretending it’s deleting but nothing happens.
Doesn’t delete in threads
Doesn’t delete anything, so not sure what function it’s supposed to serve as a “message deleter.”
So – at the moment its not working for me (maybe Slack updated their ui again?) however, I have seen it working and its clear that Peta Sittek cares about this plugin, so I’m sure it will be working again soon. Thank you for all your hard work on this.
After upgrading to 2.8.0, it is working as expected. Thanks Peta for the Quick support
Works great and Peta does a great job keeping it updated and communicating regarding issues and fixes! Thanks so much!
Working still last week but not working from today
not working at all
Does not work.. maybe an update to slack made the plugin to stop working?
Did not delete anything. It just blinks at me.
It worked great for me until the latest Slack update… it would be great to see it fixed… maybe I can help… thanks, great job!
Works as it should again with version 2.6.1! I do wish it was a little faster but hey, beggars can’t be choosers :^) Keep up the awesome work Peta, thank you!
It does not work. Very frustrating. Not sure why this is even advertised as an extension. It does nothing and the developer copies and pastes the same response to every review to “please be patient”
It indeed doesn’t seem to work anymore. Hoping for an update soon as I need it a lot right now 🙂
Current version doesn’t work any longer.
Liked it while it worked. Stopped working now. Just says it’s running but messages stay. Using the new 2.0 version.
