RobLewis 26 Posted September 7, 2010 Share Posted September 7, 2010 When I scan a document into EN, I usually care about the original date of the document, not the date that it was entered into EN. So I edit the Created Date, but that loses the scan date, which I sometimes need. The Updated Date field doesn't quite capture the semantics, since I have never actually updated the note itself. You might take a cue from the digital photo people, and store several dates as metadata: Date Created (i.e., the original document date--maybe even grabbed by OCR)Date Digitized (scanned or otherwise entered into EN)Date Modified (or as you call it, Updated)Photos can even have a separate "Metadata Date" item that records the most recent date that the file's metadata (tags and other header info) was updated. It will be a wonderful world when all the various kinds of metadata can play together nicely. Those interested in this topic might enjoy looking at metadataworkinggroup.org . Link to comment
