How to change the creation date in lotus notes… $created

I have found in a forum this little trick.

Just add a field in the document named $Created, the document will show the date in this field for the formula @created in views… nice and useful !

/* Created date, if specified overrides UNID created date for @Created */
#define FIELD_CREATED “$Created”

    Not sure if the tip is helpful for my query, but is there any way you can change the date an email will be sent? For example, if today is January 30, can it be possible that when you send an email today it will reflect as sent on an earlier date (for example January 25) instead? Appreciate any tip.Thanks!

    Hi folks.
    Not sure I understood. Could you please specify where to change the field PostedDate? Is it applicable to lotus 7? Do you write any script or you just modify some params: in both cases can you please add more details, it is quite important for a work issue of back-dated emails I received.

    Do you have something similar resolution to modify last modification date of the document? We would like to migrate lotus notes documents and we want to save original creation and modification timestamps? Any solution appreciated.

    Hello, in fact you can achieve it with C API, but I think the modify date is sensible because all the repliaction is based on this… you should mesure twice before cutting…
