Hello, thank you for taking a look at this. I really appreciate it.
I am wanting to figure out a way to count old/deleted data. I will explain this below.
This app is a classified app. Users post listings for items to be sold… Pretty simple.
USER (DataType) creates LISTINGS (DataType). LISTINGS are then displayed for all to see. That is it. once again, simple.
All LISTINGS are self-deleted after 30 days. This is done by a backend workflow.
All USERS that are inactive for over 30 days are self-deleted. This is also done by a backend workflow. (User never does sign up/password nor profile. Everything is done by email verification).
I am wanting to create an admin dashboard to display how many ACTIVE users and how many ACTIVE listings. I fully understand how to do this with ACTIVE data but I am also wanting to display how many listings and users have been created since app launch. Seeing that LISTINGS and USERS are deleted after 30 days, how would I count/keep track of how many Users and Listings have been created since launch?
Please let me know if you have any ideas on how to create a counter of some sorts or if you have a totally different idea.
Once again, thank you for your time and knowledge!
