The purpose of this article is to provide instructions for copying or deleting text messages and other options when viewing a text message in the Rainbow Office Phone app.

About managing text messages

You can manage your Rainbow Office Phone app text messages by navigating to the phone menu via the side menu bar. Beneath the Text section in the left pane, a list of all active text message conversations is organized with the most recent messages at the top.

From this section, you can manage your text messages such as deleting a conversation or specific message, blocking a number, and more. Please note that some of these options may not be available to you depending on your company account permissions.

Let’s review the actions you can perform on a text message below. 

Deleting a text message conversation

To delete a conversation, follow these steps: 

1. Navigate to Phone via the side menu bar

2. Under the Text section, hover your mouse over the conversation you’d like to delete and select the kebab menu icon on the far right

3. Click Delete from the dropdown menu to open the Delete conversation? modal window

4. Select the Delete button

Once you delete a text message conversation, you will lose the history of that conversation and you will be unable to recover that history at any time.

Deleting a text in a text message conversation

If you’d like to delete a single text in a text message conversation, follow these steps:

1. Under the Text section in the left pane, select a text message conversation

2. Hover your mouse over the text message you’d like to delete in the conversation and select the Delete trash can icon on the far right

3. Click the Delete button

Blocking a number via text message 

To block a phone number via a text message, follow these steps:

1. Under the Text section, hover your mouse over the conversation you’d like to delete and select the kebab menu icon on the far right

2. Click Block number from the dropdown menu to open the Block number? modal window

3. Select the Block button to finish blocking that number

Calling a contact via a text message

To call a contact via a text message, follow these steps:

1. Under the Text section in the left pane, select a text message conversation

2. Select the Call phone icon at top right in the center pane

This opens the dial pad in your app and dials the number attached to the text message.

NOTE: You can only call a user from an individual text message conversation. This option is not available for group text messages. 

Copying a text message

In addition to all the actions above, you can also copy a text message sent either by yourself or by another contact. To copy a text message, follow these steps:

1. Under the Text section in the left pane, select a text message conversation

2. Hover your mouse over the text message you’d like to copy in the conversation and select the Copy paper icon on the far right

This will copy the message, allowing you to paste that message anywhere you’d like.
