Add the ability to set custom names for plugins in output report

Thank you so much for the excellent GDPR personal data export functionality, we have used it few times for processing requests and have had some feedback from our customers which I would like to share here.

  • Is it possible to customise the emails that are sent to customers such as the request confirmation email or file download email ?
  • When the report is created, it uses the vanila pluin names for each section of the report, however for some of the plugins the names are not user friendly, therefore we get lot of questions from customers about these sections, is it possible to set custom names for each plugin, so that when the report is created it uses the more friendly name which is easier to understand rather than the technical name provided by plugin-developer.

best wishes

Hi @zaffarn,

Thanks for the ticket! In the future, questions like this are better suited for the support forums.

There are several filters for privacy request related emails. wp_send_user_request() and wp_privacy_send_personal_data_export_email() contain the filters for the emails you mentioned above (there are several).

For changing the label of the export data, you can supply a group_label index in the plugin's export data. You can see an example in this privacy demo repo. Just note that this demo may not be 100% accurate anymore because Allen has been on sabbatical.

If you have any more questions, feel free to pop into #core-privacy on Slack.
