Preserving Creation Date in Exported Document

Hi Folks,

I am using a callback url to batch transfer about 200 drafts into DevonThink as markdown. I am seeking to preserve information such as creation and modification dates in the output files, but the action writes the current time and date as the modified and creation dates. I would be grateful if someone would suggest a method for transferring the creation and modified dates assigned within Drafts to the newly created exports.

Thanks! Geoff

If you wrote the file using the FileManager scripting approach, and then imported them into Devonthink, you could specify dates.

Iā€™m not sure what you are doing with a URL scheme in this instance. Maybe you are attempting this on an iPhone with DTTG? But I doubt a URL scheme being used to pass on files would enable specifying dates for creating those files. However, if it did, it would be described in the Devonthink URL scheme documentation.
