Has anyone else run into this problem with Digital Objects?

We anticipate this being a larger problem as we get into digitizing more of our legacy collections and would love to see a revision to how ASpace handles the digital object dates.

Subject: AT to ASpace Migration -- Digital Object Date Label

In migrating our Digital Objects from AT to ArchivesSpace using the migration plugin, we noticed that the Digital Object Date Label defaults to "digitized" in ArchivesSpace.

So where our Digital Objects in AT might have a Date Begin in 1950 and Date End in 1951, ArchivesSpace now defaults to displaying those dates as the dates the materials were digitized.

Is there any way to change this default label? It really isn't ideal for us to have all of the DOs default to a digitized date, as that is not the information that we have been putting in the Date boxes in AT.
