Set custom timestamp on transactions

+2 votes
Would it be possible to set the timestamp of a transaction to a custom date that i set?

This is for legacy transactions on a system where the system is already running for longer than 6 months and some form of catch up of data to the BlockChain must be done.

I would like to set the timestamp to reflect the actual dates that are in my local database or will this have to be done with custom data fields instead?

You can't do this on the blockchain level unless you start messing about with the system clock on all the nodes. So I'm afraid it would require a custom field like you suggest.
