Date field details

Asked by Ray C on 2014-09-19

When I first started using Calibre, the date field would reflect the date when I imported a book, making it easy to find recent additions. In recent versions, sometimes that happens, and sometimes an older date appears.

So:
What does the Date field represent?
Where does the Date for a new book come from?
Can I make Date consistently reflect "Date added" or can I create a "Date added" field?

I'm on Win7, usually updating Calibre as new versions appear. I import books by dragging them from Windows Explorer to the Calibri UI.

Thanks,
Ray

This is the support area for persons who use calibre on Ubuntu. If you are using calibre on Windows, you might try finding support on http://calibre-ebook.com/help
