How does the DSAR timer work?
The DSAR timer helps with managing and prioritising which requests should be actioned first.
Once a request has been raised, the 30-day countdown timer will start.
Stop & Start Timer
If required, Administrators have options to stop and re-start the timer; for example, if they are waiting on further information from the requester, the timer may need to be stopped until they receive that information.
The 30-day countdown will calculate from the date the request was received - not the date it was created in the platform.
Requests can be extended, if required, by clicking the 'Extend' button on the top banner.
- Once clicked, a pop-up window will appear that will allow Admins to pick the new date that the request should be extended to, along with an option to add an extension reason.
- If required, further extensions can be added (or deadlines reduced) alongside the ability to view the notes of previous extensions.
