as far as I know the standard way for a mobile client to "synchronize" data that was deleted in the database is a login using "wipe local data" (and I assume this has always been like this). But I was wondering whether it would be technically possible to include deleted data in the sync process, e.g. using delete flags? I can imagine that you could add another timestamp column for the delete date to the table and build entity filters accordingly at app level - but you would have to make sure that no entry is actually deleted from the table.
Did anybody ever do this? Or did I miss something and there is an out-of-the-box option?
