AppColl has a "Trash" that deleted items get sent to; items in the Trash can be selectively undeleted if desired. The trash can also be emptied to permanently delete items. We would like to delete most of the trash, but
However, there are some aspects of trash that could be vastly improved:
a) For the love of God, make deleting trash items a background task. Right now, if you delete items, you can expect to wait ~3+ minutes/1000 items, and the poor schmuck doing it can't really do anything else in AppColl while the deleting is occurring.
b) The trash should be able to be filtered. For example, I'd like to be able to delete all items in the trash that are more than a month old, but the only way to do that is to go through every page of trash items more than a month old, select all items, and then delete them. At 120 pages of trash items, I'm looking at a minimum of six hours spent doing this, with me having to interact with the system every 3 minutes.
c) Add a setting that lets admins specify a default "permanently delete" age where AppColl automatically permanently deletes items in the trash that are over X days old.
And a minor quibble:
d) There are two buttons: "Permanently Delete" and "Empty Trash." They do the same thing, except that the former only deletes the items that are selected and the latter deletes ALL items in the trash. Maybe they should be relabeled "Permanently Delete Selected Items" and "Permanently Delete ALL Items."

You're right. The trash definitely needs some work. We will add this to our engineering list.
