Allow "date uploaded" / "date triggered" as metadata fields
Even though a file already has the date it was uploaded and modified attached to it, it would be useful to capture a date automatically like this in the same area where user-submitted metadata appears.
I would like a field in metadata templates and Relay similar to the date picker except that it only stamps the current date, so a file request could come in with metadata such as a user-entered email address and the date uploaded, without any chance of the user having picked a different date.
We need to download files and have their metadata visible, so we copy and paste the entire metadata section into the file itself, and having the upload date already there would save us a lot of time.
That would be great! In addition, having metadata fields added to file request with set values and not visible to uploader would be most useful. For instance if I create a file request to receive tender submissions, I'd like to set the tender ID and the submission date in the metadata 'automatically'. Cascading metadata won't work in that case as not all content in the folder would have the same metadata, plus in our case we don't grant permission to users to cascade metadata as there are risks associated to this.
