Auto created date with tasks plugin

What I’m trying to do

I want to be able to filter on tasks created this week, like this:

created date this week

For this to work well, I need tasks (I.e. checkboxes) to have a created date automatically added. The tasks plugin does this if I create the task with the “create / edit modal” but this is cumbersome and not ideal on mobile. Is there a better way to have all checkboxes have a creation date set?

Things I have tried

  1. Used the Create / Edit modal on the tasks plugin. Works but is too cumbersome.
  2. Tried adding checkboxes “manually”, but this doesn’t add a creation date

A 2-step process:

  1. Make the task list item manually
  2. Run the command "Templates: insert date’

You could save time by binding the command to a hotkey.

Or you could set up a template containing - [ ] {{date}} but it will only be useful if you turn off automatic continuation of lists.
