Give admins the ability to delete a whole thread
Currently if a thread needs to be removed from Yammer, you must delete the original post and each individual comment in the thread. It would be easier and much cleaner if there was a 'delete thread' option for group/network admins to clear a thread in a single action, to eliminate the possibility of orphaned comments remaining in the feed

Agree with the comments that this should be core functionality. Comments in threads make absolutely no sense when their initial conversation is deleted. You get all these disconnected comments floating around, attached to nothing. Terrible user experience unless an admin takes the time to delete them one by one. Absolutely needed.

molto utile, poter cancellare un intero thread senza dover cancellare il post iniziale e poi ciascun utente i singoli commenti

This is definitely needed.

Really should be core functionality.

for security reasons, sometimes we need to remove the whole conversation as a whole, this would be very good that we could remove the post as a whole.

The current functionality of how delete only removes a post and them promotes the next comment to the original post position is the most illogical thing I've seen in Yammer. The comments make no sense apart from the original post context. It only makes sense to delete the entire thread when the original post is deleted, and that should be the behavior whether the one deleting is the original poster or a network admin.

This needs to happen.Current process is to tedious.
This fact we cant do this as Yammer Admins is painful. My organisation is 200,000+ employees so comments can run into hundreds very quickly. Deleting a whole thread is very very painful!

It surprising to see that deleting a post with its associated comments is not currently possible with one simple click. Please take into account this option, as it would be the normal expectation from a user perspective.

For the love of all that is good in the world, please add this feature.
It's crazy that you can't delete a complete posts after your items sells. This needs to be corrected. I don't feel like that should be up to an admin to do either. If I can post it, I should be able to delete it too.

The ability to delete a whole company thread, would be very helpful!
It's ridiculous deleting one post at a time!
This took hours to clean up.
PLEASE, STRONGLY CONSIDER...

This would be a very helpful feature- please consider strongly!
Yea its a bit rediculous. I am trying to set up Yammer for my business office and deleting one post at a time takes hours to clean up Yammer board. Simple and easy solution please
Hello, I am suffering the same issue. We would like to be able to delete messages from one date to another and not one by one.
I hope this option is available soon.
Please consder this option because it is very useful for administrators. Delete posts 1 by 1 is a very poor way to work

Make it so that when the original poster deletes said post that all replies are deleted as well.
