If no EXIF date created, use File Created date instead (instead of sorting as No Date Information)

    Hi David,

    Monument already implements this. Let me further clarify how Monument uses date information.

    If a photo has EXIF data, we use this information. If not, it looks at the filename - some applications renames the files and includes date information like Whatsapp.

    If none of this available and if the upload is completed using the mobile app, Monument uses the file creation date.

    If the upload is completed using the desktop app, we do not use the file creation date as this information is wrong most of the cases as it could be the date when files are moved or copied.

    Hope this clarifies your question.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    Files moved or copied doesn't change the last modified timestamp, that should be used unconditionally or better yet use whichever date is the oldest (created vs modified).
