Delete Slack Messages by Date Range

Remember that week last month when you didn't get the promotion you were after, and went on Slack to tell everyone how dumb your manager was? Well, the last thing you need is for someone to leak those messages to your manager, ensuring you will never get that promotion, and maybe even lose your job all together. With the Redact date filtration tool, you can target those exact types of messages and DMs you made. Our software allows you to choose specific dates or date ranges to delete from. The date filtration tools works by start date (only delete after this date) or end date (only delete before this date). You can select by month by clicking the month label, and by year by clicking the year label. Clicking the Reset red text will reset the date value for that field.

Target & Delete by Keyword

The keyword filter is one of Redact's most potent tools. With the keyword tool, you can target all of your past Slack activity and easily find the naughty stuff. Redact will search through all of your old direct messages and public chat messages to find and delete your dicey messages based on a keyword search. Target anytime you mentioned a certain person's name, a specific word like "HR", or when you used one of those all so common 4 letter words. The Redact App is free to download and test, what are you waiting for? Take back control of your Slack history and gain peace of mind!

Delete Specific Types of Slack Messages in Mass

The message type filter is another very useful and very powerful tool for deleting old Slack content. With this filter, you can target only the specific types of content you need. The "message type" deletion options for Slack are as follows: images, videos, embeds, sounds and files. Tick the box if you want to specify the message type. By default, it searches through every message type, and this will be the case if you leave everything blank. If you select any of these it does NOT include text-only messages.
