Hi,

as there is no "wishlist" forum for Songkong but only for Jaikoz I thought to put this into the questions section.
Is it possible to write the date and time when Songkong saved a file to a selected tag?
Background:
Currently I'm using an iTunes script (Dougscripts "ThisTagThatTag") to copy the "Date added" tag to the "Comments" tag. This comment tag is indexed by MinimServer with "Date.Month" as display "filter".
By this I can easily find new songs in my library also within e.g. Linn Kazoo.
As now I always let Songkong update my Metadata after I ripped sth. it'll be one (sometimes long lasting) step less.

Thanks for considering

I dont have a good for not having a wishlist section. But your suggestions sounds sensible, Ive added https://jthink.atlassian.net/browse/SONGKONG-1422 but probably I would add it to a predefined field in the first instance, what field do you use ?

Hi Paul,

I'm copying it to the "Comments" field as I don't need it for anything else.
It's all mp4 (ALAC) if this info is necessary to know.

Best regards

And that field can be indexed by MinimServer and shown in Kazoo?

And, please, make it optional.
I do not want files that I only modify but have added to the library earlier to have that value changed.

Thanks

Yes, you can configure MinimServer to index any custom field as long as you use the appropriate custom field standard for the audio format being used.

Yes of course [nearly) all fields are optional in SongKong, but I dont quite understand that sentence, please clarify exactly when you do/not want it set

Sorry for my awkward english.

Today I'm working like this:

If I rip a CD or vinyl or buy a new digital album I import it into iTunes.
iTunes sets the "Date added" field automatically.
I then copy this to "Comments" using ThisTagThatTag.

If I change any metadata of that song iTunes changes a filed called "Date changed" but never "Date added" (Date added actually is a read-only field from an iTunes API point of view).

Therefore at any time I copy the "Date added" to "Comment" I get the date when I actually added the song and not when I changed the song.


If now with Songkong you "simply" set the value for "Date changed" whenever Songkong changes something there is the risk that I loose the information when I actually added the song to my library.


Does this explain what I mean?
