so can anyone advice if there is a way to enable deleting comments and replies from modern pages?


Hi SharePoint TestDev,

I think delete option is already exist on every comment column by clicking (...) but i am not sure the audience level whether all can delete the comments or only site owners can delete it

  • now i did not noticed the delete link, thanks for the reply. but now seems delete is working more than what i expected. as seems anyone with contribute permission on the pages can delete others comments? not sure if there is a way to control this? so to only allow users to delete their own reply/comments (comment and replies created by them)? – SharePoint TestDev Nov 5 '18 at 15:01
  • i think your rely has fixed my main problem ..i created another question regarding if we can prevent users from deleting others comments and replies @ sharepoint.stackexchange.com/questions/252129/… – SharePoint TestDev Nov 5 '18 at 16:00
