Can I display a (Confluence) task creation date in the Task Report macro?

I can filter on that date, so I should be able to display it.  But "createdate" does not work.

The only documented working columns are "Allowed columns are description, duedate, assignee, location, completedate, labels".

We would also like to see this functionality. Currently newly created tasks ar not automatically shown at the top. and the last below.  With 10 pages of tasks this gives a very unclear overview.

This is a function that we need too. It should be possible to add a column for creation date and it should be possible to sort the list on creation date.

Hi Gregory,

I can see Created ?


Hi, any update here? Is it possible to display creation date not due date? 

Looks like, according to CONFSERVER-42908 ticket from Task start date | Bruce Cannon | Jun 15, 2016, Atlassian will never implement this feature:

Atlassian update

Thank you for raising this suggestion. We regret to inform you that due to limited demand, we have no plans to implement it in the foreseeable future. In order to set expectations, we're closing this request now. Sometimes potentially valuable tickets do get closed where the Summary or Description has not caught the attention of the community. If you feel that this suggestion is valuable, consider describing in more detail or outlining how this request will help you achieve your goals. We may then be able to provide better guidance. Thanks again.

There is the suggestion in Including start date in Confluence tasks to specify two "due dates" and come to an agreement that the first one is the "start date".
