Message Center - Delete Expired Messages in Batch

Purpose:  This document reviews the process for deleting expired message center messages

Audience:  Student Services Staff

Deleting Expired Messages

There is not a way to recover or view deleted messages.

Since this is a global process, this process will be scheduled by ERP support and not run by individual colleges.  This QRG reviews the process for informational purposes only.  

Expired Threads will still display in the Message Center box until this process is run. An expiration message will appear on the top right of the message for the student.
