Sub-types for page expiration and archiving via labels

Currently the add-on has rudimentary support for two hardwired sub-types, expressed via the labels "archive-review" or "archive-update".

This isn't complete, neither flexible.

    As the space owner for me it is interesting to find out find out which pages are expired and do not have the label archive-review or archive-update. It could be implemented as a fourth filter option. This idea already came to the product backlog of midory. If I have other ideas I will enter.

    It would be very useful to be able to label pages to expire in intervals. Setting a label like, expire_180 so that those pages expire every 180 days. This will make it very easy to set up once, and update every X number of days. 

    For example, we would set our quarterly reports pages to expire every quarter.

    Along these lines, we could really use an extra label:

    archive-children

    Applied to a page, when Archiving is run all the CHILDREN of that page will get swept away to the Archive space, while preserving the page that has the "archive-children" label. That way, any child that gets added to that parent page will be archived. 

    Also, to clarify, this isn't a custom label (custom being made by customer to suit their needs) but simply adding an extra label to the already-in-use set that comes with the tool.

     

    For instance there is already an archive-single, so hopefully adding an archive-children label and defining its functionality would not be a significant ask.

     

    thanks!

    @Kcosby if you add the "archive" (recursive) plus the "noarchive-single" (non-recursive) to a page, then all its children will be archived, but not the page itself! It works with the current app version, just tried.

    Oh wow, yep! This works! Thank you! It's a little odd to explain to my end users but it does achieve the desired results. So grateful for you for pointing this out! I added it to our users guide.

    Glad that it was helpful. (I know it's a bit odd, so I could imagine adding a dedicated label for this use case. That's exactly why I keep it open.)
