Disable and Remove Chatter Chat Box

If your organization is not a Salesforce Chatter user, the little chat box in the lower right hand corner can get really annoying, really fast. Here's how to disable that bugger and thus remove it from your line of sight. You need to have Admin rights to perform this function.

Disable and Remove Chatter Chat Box:

  1. Click on your profile name on the top row
  2. Click on "Setup"
  3. In the left hand panel, Click "Customize" located under "App Set-up"
  4. This reveals a drop down menu of options. Click "Chatter" located near the bottom of the list.
  5. Under Chatter you will see "settings". Click it.
  6. This brings up the Chatter Settings page. Click on the "Edit" button to make changes to your settings.
  7. You should see that the Chatter Settings are "Enabled" indicated by a checked box. Click the box again to uncheck the box. This will disable Chatter for your entire organization.
  8. Click save and watch as the Salesforce Chatter chat box vanishes from sight!
