What if I told you could have the creation date of a task in a custom field? I know some workflows would love to have such an information available, to sort for example!
A while back, I created a service that allows you to compute a custom field based on other fields. As a nice side effect, I realized I could actually use the service to fill in a custom field with native information like creation date, completion date… a lot of information that is usually unavailable to most because it requires an access to the API!
The attached image is the implementation I did for a client that needed to sort helpdesk requests by creation date! Reach out to me if you want the same thing!
