Note: The Suppress your sent message entitlement needs to be enabled at the pod and user-level in order to perform this action


When you remove a message, users across all devices, including the Symphony mobile app, can no longer see nor search for it. By default, there is no time limit on when you can remove a message. However, your Admin can enforce a time limit. For example, if your Admin officers enforcing a 5 minute time limit, you can only remove messages that you sent 5 minutes ago or less.

A user can only remove messages sent by themselves. Alternatively, the REST API can also be used to remove/suppress a message.

Note: Removed messages can be viewed by your Compliance Officer(s) as suppressed messages from the Admin Portal

Note: Content Export includes all suppressed messages with an indication that they have been suppressed
