Changing the create date

Recommended Posts

I scan a lot of documents into Evernote, basically everything I receive in the mail that I deem worth saving.  I usually scan them once a week or so.  In the windows client I can change the create date to the date I actually received the document from the scanned date.

In the web client (and the new beta) I don't see how to that?

Is there a way to do this?

Tks

Hi.  I have the same process for scanning paper, but I scan to a folder on my hard drive which gives me the opportunity to add the origin date of the document to the title in yyyymmdd format. (I have a text expander to make the yyyymm bit one keypress).  A typical title might be "20200515 receipt - Amazon - micrometer" so with various intitle:<variable(s)> I can find all the documents I processed since 20200501,  everything that went through in January,  all receipts this year etc etc.  With each list of hits I have a sortable list of titles that will put it in date order if I need it that way.

I also prefix the note title with subject date (yyyy/mm/dd format)   
Notes have a subject date field, but it's hard to access in Evernote

I leave the note created date as  .... the date the note was created

Thanks for the replies.

I prefer to change the create date because that allows me to easily sort by the create date and display the list of notes within a notebook that way.
