    Hello Toh,

    CHanging the PublicationDate from the UI can be alittle tricky, as every time you click on the Publish button the date will be updated. However, we have offered a solution for similar scenario in this forum thread, where a custom field of type DateTime is added to the item, so you can use the DateTimePicker to specify a custom publication date. Then you can run the code sample provided in the forum thread to set the Publication date of the items to the value specified in the custom field.
