Audit User Conversations in 8x8 Admin Console


Audit user chat conversations as an administrator from within 8x8 Admin Console.



Note: Due to the sensitive nature of this role, it is not assigned to any user by default, and only the primary (Super Admin) has initial access to the Audit Management Admin role which they must assign to themselves, and can assign to other administrators.

Historical chat messages of deleted users can also be retrieved through Audit Management.
