Retention Policies & Coordinators

This release includes a new Retention Policy feature that allows users to locally delete messages, calls and broadcasts after a chosen period of time. The retention period can be set by the user on their device, or enforced by an Administrator from the Salt Enterprise Portal.

A new Coordinator role has been introduced for Broadcast Channels. Users with the Coordinator capability are able to forward a broadcast message to a selected contact or group chat. This entitlement can be controlled from the Channels section of the Salt Enterprise Portal.

Additionally, an expiration time can be set on each Broadcast Channel causing posts within the channel to be deleted from a subscribers device after the set time. For example, if a broadcast channel has set time of 3 days, 3 days after a post was initially made it will be deleted from that broadcast channel.
