    I would add to this list, the ability to restore Community apps data. There is not even a trash or 90 day window if an individual app and its data are deleted.

    I could not agree more! All these features are an absolute MUST if you want to operate communities on a larger scale and manage the lifecycle of these communities. IBM/HCL when do you put these items on your roadmap?
