Files section - adding 'Modify Date' to folders when a file is uploaded inside

0 Kudos

The 'Created by' date on a folder doesn't update each year when course content is copied from a different course. And so seeing this date is confusing to end user whether it is teacher or student. 

It would be better to hide this date completely or to somehow update the experience so that users are less confused when they add a new files to the folder in new year... and still see last year's date still on the folder.

See example screenshot. I just tried renaming the folder to see if it would update or make the 'Modified By' date appear.... but this didn't work.
