Ability to send a notification without being triggered by an event frame
As a notification user I want to receive a report on daily or weekly basis but I dont want to store any associated data about it like the event frame information or the notification history since I use event frames for other purposes and I dont want to clutter my PI system
Similarly : We send hundred of data to SAP every day to schedule maintenance based on utilisation. There is no need to keep the Event Frames when the data is sent. Auto-delete can be another solution.

+1 the use case I would mention is that I want to send a notification to remind a user to update manual data. There is no need to store an Event Frame for this, just the email reminder is needed.
Maybe a flexible solution would be to have Event Frames that can expire or auto-deleted once they end and/or acknowledged?
