Fairly regularly we get called on to backdate the “Last Published date” of “News item” assets. This is often the case when a new site is being established/migrated, and past news is being brought across.
At the moment, the only way this can be done is via the Settings screen of the Admin interface - the “last published” field isn’t available in Edit+. We’re increasingly moving away from giving users access to the backend (hence the requests for us to backdate for people).
We have a temporary fix using a metadata field to provide an override, but it’s a bit clunky.
Wondering if others have ancountered similar issues.
Is there any chance we could get that included in the Edit+ interface for News Items in a future release?
