Primary dates

What are Primary dates?

Primary dates are dates used by GoldFynch to organise documents for purposes like searching through, sorting, and producing files. Most files and documents in GoldFynch have a Primary date.

Depending on the type of file, there is a default date that will be set as its Primary date when it is processed after being uploaded to GoldFynch:
