I am working on a feature that allows the user to upload historic data via CSV upload. The date of creation is important here, so I want to set “created date” to a certain date in the past (included in the CSV). I know that I can’t map directly to the Created Date field, but is there any way to change it one time?
The only other option as far as I see it is to add another field to all of my data points. This will involve me having to go back and set this field for every existing datapoint, and alter countless data sources within my app that reference created date to make them reference a new date. Would adding this new field have a material impact on my apps database? Would it make it slower or much larger in any case?
