Enter the date and place for your FamilySearch Photos/Documents

I noticed this new feature today, now you can add the location and date for a photo or document you've uploaded. Of course, you could have listed this information in the title or description before, but there are certain advantages to this update.

I hope this will be used to improve the ability to search and filter through uploads. I'd also like to see an option that would ask you if you wanted to do anything with the date and place when you attach the image as a source. For example: Identify it as the birth or death fact, and have it merged into the Family Tree person as part of the source attachment process. Those are just some ideas of how keeping the date and place in a different box could be beneficial someday.

This is what it looks like:
