Remove/filter File-Request feature-request

Remove/filter File-Request feature-request

I've read in other discussions, that it is not possible to permanently get rid of file requests. I understand that this is how databases have to work, but to just keep extending the list is not a good option either. So i would like to suggest the following: Implement a way to filter and/or tag File-Requests (at least for the Api, because that's more important to me right now). That way the Database doesn't have to really delete anything but users/apps still get the option to not see and list all the old stuff.

Also this would allow for the added bonus of not having to squeeze the old stuff through the internet when the list is requested.

Hopefully I was able to convince a few of the developers... Please at least let me know if this sounds doable. Tanks!

Another way to not keep lengthening the list of file requests would be to recycle them by updating the path & name and just reactivate the request. Unfortunately this would allow every person, who has previously used this request id to see* & upload data to the new request, which is not an option for this applciation. Just mentioning that...

*see the request, not the data
