Hi; the date of capture is held within the "Date Time Original" field in the EXIF data; but within the IPTC fields which a customer wants filled in (as this is what their system reads), the "Date Created" is blank. Currently i have to fill in manually this field if i want it populated; but i would really like a "replicate" button by which i can auto-populate this field.

Would be very useful!

Assuming you are exporting renditions to provide to customers, you can probably use a plug-in like Friedl's Metadata Wrangler to do this automatically. Or a post-export action might be able to do it.
