Is there a way for admins to delete old trash, or a system setting to auto purge trash that's older than a certain date?

For feature suggestions, describe the result you would like to achieve in detail.

Instead of periodically asking users to purge their trash, is there a way admins can do it, or better still, is there a system setting somewhere that can auto purge trash more than X days old?

Hello @charles
Please clarify if you mean ‘Trash’ bin folder in Documents module of Workspace installation.

The ‘trash’ folder in OO documents that receives all ‘deleted’ items that users ‘delete’.

This feature will be released in Community Server v.12

I see this mentioned in the just released update release notes. But I haven’t yet been able to find that setting. Would you kindly point me to it?

It’s in the Common Settings of the Documents module.

Got it, thanks!
