Make Created Date an editable field

Our users were able to edit the Created Date when using Edit Profile in our last document management system.

This would be a really useful enhancement to control the order of documents when sorted chronologically.  They aren't always sent out on the day they are created.

The best thing to do to accomplish this is to create a custom date field that can also default to the current date. Users can still sort by it, it is automatically filled out, but users can change it at any time. The system-generated Created By/Date field should NOT be changed to preserve data integrity.
