Removing Users from Existing Text Message

Many groups set up text message threads, and have a need at times to remove certain users from the message string. I realize you can create a new text message, but the point is, they'd like to retain the message history. A similar way to think of this is like email where you start a email string, reply to all, but need to drop certain people off the conversation as it's not relevant anymore.

Admitting Representative A messages the group "Admitting". This, in turn, messages all the Admitting staff when Admitting Representative A only meant for the message to go to Admitting Representative B. If there was an ability in Vocera to remove participants from a text message conversation after created, Admitting Representative A wouldn't have to take the extra work to create a new text message and then send it to the correct person, rather, they would be able to remove all participants as needed.

    The ability to remove yourself was added to the VCS 3.9 version. There are no plans to allow users to remove other users from conversations.
