Dear all,

Due to the development in privacy laws in Europe we are not allowed to store information about people without there consent or without a time limit. Joomla 3.9 has a nice consent module build into the core so that part is covered, but the storage part is not. We are using BreezingForms for quite some time now and with that we store the information entered in a number of forms. What I would like to see in BreezingForms is an admin option to automatically delete records older than x time from specific forms. (for example, information requests only need to be stored for maybe 3 months but user registration for maybe one or two years)
Is there something available or otherwise doable?

Best regards,
Jeroen

Hi,

We don't have this feature inside BreezingForms,sorry.
You can delete records manually inside BreezingForms > Manage Records. You can use a dropdown filter to select last 3 months and do it yourself.
Alternative to this would be to create a CRON job on your server level that would containt a SQL query that would delete / empty those records.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Mario

Hello Mario,

Thank you for your reply. Might this be a feature that will be implemented in the future? I think we more or less will be forced to do such actions by law in the near future. Maybe it should be something within Joomla itself...

Hi,

Thank you for your input regarding this and have added this request to our "to-do" list, although your request is not first one.
Hopefully our devs will pick it up soon and add it to BF.
Until then I ask for patience :)

Regards,
Mario
