#38 Purge old data

Frank Black

It would be useful to be able to purge old data - say
before a certain date or possible also certain task
(and subtrees).

    Dear Frank,
    do you mean DELETE, THROW THEM OUT? Just like they never
    Why you want to do that? Isn't a better idea to make a
    "archive" node and move there every (sub)task you want not
    to see anymore? And then, if you want - delete it?
    regards, zgibek

    I guess, there will be quite a collection of data over the
    time. It might be helpful to just move everything before a
    certain date to some archive.

    Scenario: Working on a projekt over several month. Every
    month data is transfered into a billing/ controlling system
    and is not any longer needed in TT.

    I understand: archiving can be done by copying one file.
    (Which one?) But still you have all the old entries visible.

    I want to bump this up in importance, I've been using TSL for about 2 weeks and I'm already wishing I could remove old entries. I believe there should be a way to export all entries for some date range to a file that can be archived, and optionally delete those entries from the current file.

    I disagree with zgibek, an "archive" node is a hack, and it would make going back through the history tedious. (Is there any performance guarantee with TSL for loading huge number of entries?)

    Removing timeslots created before given date in trunk (try shapshot).
