Date Record Created - only available as a trigger formula?


I’m getting started with using Grist and appreciate the wonderful tool and the community’s support!

I can tell how to use a trigger formula to created a column that logs the date / time a record was created, but retrospectively if I didn’t think of that before, is there any way to pull the creation date of a record from the RECORD() or anything like that?


Hi there and welcome to the Community! Your username is fantastic :alien:

There is no way to pull the date an existing record was created since that information isn’t recorded anywhere.

If you are looking at a specific record, the doc history and snapshots might help narrow down a time range when it was created.
