    I've got the same thing going on. Now it's hard to run a specific channel in the server that I'm in! I hope they will change it soon, because it's too bad there is no disable old messages permission when people get a role in a specific channel.

    Totally agree. This is really irritating and makes the permission near unusable and quite misleading.

    Honestly, I'm so glad I found this thread before I messed with the permissions and caused confusion on my server. IMO, the way this permission option (Read Message History) is worded seems like it should do as the OP states:
    ALLOW - The user can see ALL of the messages EVER sent to the channel (granted that they have permission to view the channel and its messages in the first place, of course), including from before they joined the server/were granted a particular role.

    DENY - The user SHOULD NOT be able to see any messages from before they joined the server/were granted a particular role. They SHOULD, however, be able to see ALL of the messages from the point where they joined the server/were granted a particular role, regardless of if they have signed in or checked the channel recently.

    I don't necessarily think it requires any additional, more granular permission settings, but it certainly couldn't hurt to make this option more clear. As it is, this permission can definitely be confusing.

    How is this even allowed. Make it like irc, if you are in you see the messages, if you come in, you should not be able to see messages goin back YEARS AND YEARS.

    In certain channels, it may be appropriate for new members to be able to see all of the history - for example, "help" or "FAQ" channels. Being able to search through "years and years" of posts to find an answer to your own question would be beneficial. In other channels - such as those for server mods, guild "officers", etc. - you may not want new members to be able to see the discussions that took place prior to them joining the channel (maybe some of those discussions were about the new arrival). I can definitely see applications for both of these use-case scenarios.

    What I don't think is at all intuitive is the current implementation of the "Read Message History" permission (see my "rant" above).

    This is what we need.

    I agree. This should definitely be a feature that moderators czn control. New members shouldn't need to see certain channel history..

    Then go create your own suggestion and comment on it how it's the greatest feature ever.

    This one is about "Message history" permission being essentially broken by design in many many ways and pretty much useless

    Just ran into same issue.
    Wording suggest not being able to read message history before being accepted into said channel. This is what should be implemented.
    For whomever cares about the current feature of a live-channel, feel free to move it somewhere else. But I believe most users want the above first off.

    Hi Discord Team!

    Requirement/Problem: Adding a new contributor/user/friend into a Discord channel and have the ability to let them see the messages only since they joined, not the past ones. Unfortunately, this is not possible right now.

    Solution: Changing the "Read Message History" feature, or adding other permissions to this feature to achieve the aforementioned behavior. In fact, the current "Read Message History" solves another use case.

    This new feature should be quite easy to implement considering the "Read Message History" feature. Plus, adding it to Discord would solve a real problem for enterprise use of Discord. Whatsapp and Slack have it as well. If you could add it in your next updates, that would be great!

    Thank you for your time! Have a nice day!

    How the hell after 2 years of requests / issues / recommendations / suggestions, the discord team still hasn't implemented a way for a new user to not be able to access the channel chat history? I don't want them to have to be logged in to see the messages, I want to invite a new user and I'm not interested in him seeing the history of the chat. Just from the moment he joins, that's it. This is an app mostly used for games and sometimes we invite new gamers which previously they may have been an opponent. Not that we're talking crap about them but there may be info that I don't want accessible, only from there on.

     

    Come on discord team, do something!

    Adding further support for this request.
    I want to invite someone else to a server, but want do not want them to see anything said prior to their joining.
    The only other option is to start an entirely new server for my group of friends, and that means hanging on to an old server for archival/search purposes AND a new server. It's just a ridiculous set of options either way.
    ...I guess the *best* options is to make duplicate channels, move the old ones into an archived/hidden list current/previous members can access via roles... and then the duplicate channels replace the old ones... Ugh.

    I can’t believe this is still an issue.

    This feature would also be great on a by channel base, since most servers have something like internal team channel but don't want new memer to read messages from before. So it would be really great to have something like "only read message starting with permission to see"
