The creation date defaults to when the song was created in Songspace, but you can change it to any date. You can also clear the date if you don't know it or don't want to include it. In music publishing-speak, creation date is sometimes referred to as the "date of creation" or "DOC".
1. To set the creation date, first open a song project by clicking the title in the catalog view.
2. Click Edit beside the creation date in the header.
3. Then type in the date you wish to set it as and it will appear in the header.
You can also clear the date completely by clicking the X next to the date.
4. After selecting your date, make sure to save your changes by clicking Update.
