Hiding chat history to new team members

Hello, I’m testing out a Mattermost installation for our organization. It appears to me that a new team member can see all the message history in public channels, including messages posted from before they were added. Once they are added to a private channel, they can see all that channel’s message history as well. If that is correct, is there any way to modify this so that a new user would only see the messages beginning with when they were added?

Sorry if this question has been asked and answered; I couldn’t find it on the forum.

Thank you!

Unfortunately we don’t support that yet, but we have an open feature request for it If you’d like you can add your vote to the feature request.
