    Fairly simple request (I believe):

     

    Currently, the 'State' of Solution is one of three choices:

    • Draft
    • Internal
    • Approved

     

    My company has created a number of solutions now and like using them to help internal staff. Over time (we've been using solutions since 2014), some of those solutions become out-of-date. It would be nice to have a 'State' to show the Solution is no longer relevant, without having to delete it. Perhaps an "Expired" state?

     

    This would also help with sorting the list of solutions because a view could be created that excluded out-of-date solutions (expired).

     

    Currently, you have to either change the state to "Draft" (not really applicable), delete it (no good - we still want the information), or edit the solution with some giant font "DO NOT USE".

    What problem will this feature solve?:
    This resolves: Displaying of older / irrelevant information without having to alter other aspects of the solution. Maintaining a manageable list of 'current' / active solutions.
