Message Auditor

Rocket.Chat allows authorized users to audit messages and read conversations in a workspace. The user must have an auditor role and Can Audit permission to access the Audit Messages Panel. As an organization, you may also want to inspect the omnichannel conversations and watch out for agents who use improper language with customers.
An auditor can do the following:
  • Review messages in private rooms.
  • Review messages by users.
  • Review direct messages between users.
  • Review omnichannel messages.
  • Check the audit history of individuals using the Message Audit Logs.
To access the Audit Messages Panel,
  • Navigate to Administration > Audit > Messages.
If you can't find the audit options, you can get in touch with your workspace administrator to assign message auditing permissions to you.
