Auto pruning closed reports

Post by Avdon »

Hello,
Closed reports are not helpful after a period of time.
In my board I don't see why closed reports belong to 1 year ago (for example) should be kept, the only thing they do is using storage space! So I try to keep the ones belong to 30 days and less, and delete the others. I don't actually remember to do that every day or even every month! And when I do remember there would be 30-40 pages of closed reports that I should delete, which is really hard and give me headache!
So, I was thinking if there is a feature to auto prune closed reports, from those who belongs to more than a month, it would be very useful.

Might be good...for 3.2. 3.1 is not the place for this though as we are trying to finish up development.

This could probably go in a minor version. I like the idea (although I don't think I'm capable of implementing it).
Made by developers, for developers!

I'm just going to move this topic to avoid duplicates.
