1- Personalize new email-based method used to confirm personal data requests. For starters, allow custom greeting (HOWDY) and signature (Regards, Site Title) to a more business custom text supplied by admin.

2- GDPR Article 20 https://gdpr-info.eu/art-20-gdpr/ states "right to data protability". New feature to provide method to export in JSON or CSV.

3- Add feature to list GDPR data source either title or URL to be included in data reporting output. Output doesn't say "where" in other plugins that data has been found.Examples: a- User's data request reports 3 entries from Gravity Forms but doesn't state which of the 100+ forms on our site. b- User's data request reports 2 subscriptions for Mailpoet but doesn't state campaign list.

4- Set dashboard widget reminder of open requests with status and days to fullfill each request. That way emailed requests tagged as spam won't be lost.

Thank you for the opportunity to submit enhancements!

I think this enhancement is necessary not only for the GDPR, but in the whole WordPress core, because if you want to have a formal and serious website, the "Howdy" treatment is not the most appropriate.

Sincerely I hope developers take this improvement into consideration and make it effective in future updates.
