Cannot update create date on Survey library by CSOM RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi 

    I want to update the create date on Survey library by below code:

    List list = web.Lists.GetByTitle(ListName);

    list.Created = DateTime.Now;

    But it throw the error message of "Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.List.Created' cannot be assigned to -- it is read only".

    Is it the create date in each library is not allow to edit by CSOM? 

    Any suggestion will be appreciated.

  • Hi Kit2607,

    According to your description, you want to change the list created time.

    Per my knowledge, it’s not possible. The created field of list is read-only.

    You can use SharePoint manager to check the field.

    What we can do is updating the list items’ created field.

    Best Regards,
