How To Delete A Community On Teams

Do you have a community that you no longer want to use on Teams? Or is there no one else using the conversation? In any case, you can delete the community along with the chat history on the app. Follow our quick guide below, and we’ll teach you how to do it.


In Microsoft Teams Personal, users can create communities to have a place for conversations with their friends, family, and other people with the same interests in the app. With the help of communities, you can easily plan events, gatherings, and other stuff with the chat participants.

As a lot of time pass by, you might find yourself managing a community with no active members. When that happens, you have the option to delete the chat for everyone.

Here’s our guide about deleting a community on Teams.
