I am working with a third-party solution for SharePoint that has some limitations I am trying to work around.
We are using a SharePoint library as a repository for XML objects, and this third-party solution has a mechanism for adding metadata from SharePoint columns into the XML files. In order for this mechanism to work, the desired column must be added to a content type.
I would like to do this with the default Created column, but I do not see a way to add this column to a content type, since it is just there by default.
I tried using a calculated column to store the created date/time, but the vendor has informed me that that is not supported, unfortunately. So that adds a level of difficulty.
