      Description

      Consider:

      • Admin needs the retention periods to be dependent on when content is created, not a course date which mostly in moodle sites isnt set, and may never be set.

      Other possibilities include:

      • examine logs for activity (not necessarily reliable)
      • add a log event watcher which updates a course field (only suitable for data going forward)
      • per-activity calculation (e.g. assignment due date, quiz close date, etc).

      Potential issues:

      • logs are not guaranteed
      • does the act of viewing the course extend its lifetime (Heisenburg)
