How to automatically delete files after a set period of time?

Hi, a client has asked if it is possible for files to automatically be deleted after a set period of time. I doubt this functionality is built into Docman but I could be wrong?

Otherwise is there an Docman extension that can do this?

Hi Mark, this feature is indeed not part of DOCman. DOCman 2 does offer the ability to unpublish documents from the site on a set date. It doesn't offer the ability to remove them.

There are also no extensions that can do this. It is possible to achieve this by creating a custom plugin that can be triggered through a cron job. This would require custom development.

Does that help ?
