Feature Request: Bulk Delete Option for Chat History

Dear OpenAI Team,

I hope this message finds you well. I am writing to request a feature enhancement for the ChatGPT platform, specifically regarding the management of chat history.

Feature Request: Bulk Delete Option

As a frequent user of ChatGPT, I often find myself with numerous old threads in my history pane. Deleting each thread individually is time-consuming and inefficient. To improve user experience, I would like to request the implementation of a “Bulk Delete” or “Batch Delete” feature. This feature would allow users to select multiple threads simultaneously and delete them in one action.

Key Benefits:

  1. Time Efficiency: Save users time by allowing them to delete multiple threads at once.
  2. Improved User Experience: Enhance the usability of the history pane by making it easier to manage and organize chat history.
  3. Better Performance: Potentially improve platform performance by enabling users to clean up their history more effectively.

Suggested Implementation:

  • Multi-Select Option: Add checkboxes next to each thread in the history pane to allow for multi-selection.
  • Select All: Include a “Select All” option for users who want to delete all threads.
  • Bulk Delete Button: Provide a single “Delete Selected” button that deletes all selected threads with one click.

Thank you for considering this feature request. I believe it will significantly enhance the user experience for many ChatGPT users. I appreciate your attention to this suggestion and look forward to any updates you may provide.

Best regards,

Wini G
