Check Historical Edits and Deletions of Messages

Rocket.Chat recommends the following setting preferences to enable you to view any modified or removed messages.

  • Go to the Administration

  • Scroll down to Messages on the left-side menu.

Make sure to set your message preferences as follows:

  • Enable Allow Message Editing and Keep Per Message Editing History to see a history of all messages and not only the last edit made.

  • Disable Allow Message Deleting, otherwise, messages show only the message deleted status and you cannot see the complete message history.
