Date field for Podcast Item types

Why is there no date field for Podcast Item types?
  • no good reason, really. It will be added, but that process is non-trivial, so it'll still take some time.
  • Good to know.

    Any chance of having projected estimate of time and/or when done?
  • not really, lot's of moving part. More than 3 months, less than 3 years?
  • (existing issue: https://github.com/citation-style-language/zotero-bits/issues/2 ; no need to comment there, it's clear this needs to change)
  • In the meantime, you can add a date by putting the date at the top of Extra like this:
    issued: 2013-08-31
  • Thanks for the feedback all.

    Much appreciated.
  • Still longing for this field...
  • You can add it to Extra like this:
    Issued: 2019-03-28

    This will get picked up by citations

  • Not the ones I generated in APA or CMS (author-date)...
  • You get the date in full for APA in the bibliography; you only get the year in CMS (author-date). If you don't, you're likely not using the exact same structure for the Extra field.
  • You need to enter it exactly as I have. The word “issued”, a colon, a space, then the date in ISO format YYYY-MM-DD
  • Even if I put a "Date" or "Year" or "Issued" field in Extra, it doesn't show up in the "Year" or "Date" column in Zotero, and when I sort entries by year, it is sorted as not having a year.

    It would be nice to be able to sort podcasts by date or year when I'm browsing my database.
  • The Extra field is a workaround, not a solution. Anything you put there will migrate to a proper field once that exists (but don't use "date" or "year" -- it needs to be "issued")
  • How comes this issue that has been reported about a decade ago is still not addresses? Underlying misconception appears to be that podcast is modeled after song (sic!) and not after radio broadcast
    Anybody got any idea how to get this getting fixed anytime soon?
  • As I say in the first reply here:
    no good reason, really. It will be added, but that process is non-trivial, so it'll still take some time.
    There are no misconceptions about the nature of podcasts involved.
    There have been no updates to any item types or fields in Zotero in the last 10 years for that same reason. Getting closer now, so carefully optimistic about this year.
