One of our clients has noticed that every time they export a contact (Adv Search or via a Report) an activity is created against each contact of type 'Contact Exported' with the date and the staff member who ran the export. They do a lot of exports and its causing a problem.

Has anyone seen this before? I'm pretty sure its not a core function (or if it is its new). I think someone may have installed an extension then removed it but its left this function in place.

The latest version of the GDPR extension does this. It records when contacts have been exported for audit purposes.

  • I think we added a setting to turn it off, its come up a few times so worth checking you have the latest version etc. If not give us a shout and we'll try to get an option to turn that off added. Jul 3, 2020 at 9:03
