I was wondering about how to set up a relevant date field in DevonThink. I understand the sense of not being able to edit the date created & date modified fields, however I would like to append a relevant date to items like meeting minutes and agendae. I need that column to display in the list of documents so I can quickly find the documents I need for syncing to my iPad so the comment workaround I don’t think would work for me.
Grateful for any thoughts
Actually, Creation Data and Modified Date can be adjusted. See, for example, the scripts in Scripts > Date. (You might need to first install the scripts via the Support Assistant.) Use one of those, or write a script that prompts and sets the date you desire. It is only Addition Date that cannot be modified via scripting.
As Jim mentioned (before I could press “Submit” ) an alternate approach is to put a date value into a tag, for example “ReadMe” could be set to “20130613” or some such. Tags can be displayed in the list views.
