    These dates are metadata created with your posts to let you know when the post was created/imported, published, modified in Webflow.

    Wouldn't creating new Date fields and binding those imported dates to the new/custom fields work for you?

    Can you provide an example of a use case where you believe you need to change the metadata and using a custom Date field would not work?

    Yes, a custom date field will work in all those cases. You're right - it's not really necessary!

    I think I can provide a fairly valid use case, unless I'm missing something obvious:

    I'm building a site for a company that has an existing database of Press Releases. Each new Press Release after the new site will automatically get a "Created Date" when Zapier fetches it from an existing RSS-feed. This "Created Date" can then be used to sort and filter Press Releases.

     

    However, the existing database of Press Releases will all have the same "Created Date". Being able to change them to the original publish date would fix this.
