This component only has one tab.
Date Created was especially intended to add a publication date to news articles. When this component is present or added to a page, it will show the initial date and time this page was created. This timestamp can then be modified, and the new date/time will be locked in as the page’s ‘postDate’.
It works with the News List Component and other Lists to generate a chronological list of stories sorted by postDate, as well as to allow readers to see the date a story was originally released. Accordingly, some page templates, like the News Article Template, automatically add this component when they are used to create a new page.
