It would be a nice feature if WPFD included an Expiry Date value for uploaded documents and some auto-expiry features to help keep your online document library up to date.
Plus related features
- expiry reminder emails to designated users/roles when documents are due to expire soon
- list files due for expiry - this would allow owners to review expiry - expiry date could be revised as necessary or the document updated
- expiry options - delete permanently or move to a designated/"Expired Docs" category
In some case a business has file retention policies
A file retention value eg 5 years could be recorded against a Category, so that any doc uploaded into that category (and subcategories of it?) automatically has an expiry date applied - from the date of upload
I think this would be a great feature for websites with lots (hundreds/thousands) of documents
