When you are uploading assets to Canto, you may notice that the Date Created field may show the date that the file was uploaded into Canto instead of when the file was first created. This means that the file itself does not have a Date Created metadata associated with it. 


For example, if the file was first uploaded to your computer on January 1st, 2020, the file will reflect that date. If the file is uploaded to Canto today, it will reflect today's date.


The time may reflect a time different from your timezone. The time is actually reflecting the time in UTC which is the default setting we have for our servers.


Please note, if the Date Created is not in the correct format (e.g. 22-10) the Date Created will default to January 1, 1900.
