All files have same date upon import

Hi everyone, 

When I import a Blackboard Archive zip file into a Canvas course, the files all end up having the same creation date. Is there a way to keep the date of the actual creation to keep some order? 

Many thanks!

Hi  @joannal_lau .  This is a good question.  I couldn't find anything written on it specifically, but am pretty sure that the creation date will always show when it was added to Canvas and that there isn't a way to bring over the creation date from the files themselves.  After uploading files, you can rename them, though, if doing so would help with organization.  This option is found using the menu (3 dots) next to a particular file.  If someone else has found a way to keep the date of file creation when one is uploaded, I would love to hear it as well!
