Hi, I've seen a few similar posts but still not seen a full solution to the issue of publishing/release date on iTunes - on the Soundcloud help link which describes how Soundcloud maps fields to iTunes

http://help.soundcloud.com/customer/portal/articles/1962243-how-do-the-soundcloud-profile-and-track-...

I can't work out what the numbers refer to in the image?

I am still trying to find a work around to the issue of the publishing date showing up as the release date in iTunes, which has put my podcasts out of order on the store. Is there any way to fix this?

Thanks very much

Hi there Houndsounds,

Currently, iTunes picks up the upload date on SoundCloud indeed. We've reached out to our podcasting product team and let them know about your query and consider this when making feature plans for future updates on podcasting. Currently, I'm afraid the only way to adjust this is to upload the tracks again in the right order on SoundCloud. Sorry about the inconvenience this might cause you.

All the best
Mathis
