Temporary message - delete after given time

Hey,

sometimes its handy to sent a message that will be deleted after a given time e.g. confidential info
Is there any feature like this in Mattermost?

Thank you.

Hi @ochorocho, we have a Data Retention feature in E20: https://docs.mattermost.com/administration/data-retention.html.

@amy.blais thanks for your response.

i’m more looking for a “per message solution”

Like a special command with a given amount of time. Afterwards this message will deleted.

/temp_msg "some secret" 1m

Maybe its time for me to start writing mattermost plugins
