Hello Benjamin,

Thank you for your post. Firstly, when it comes to including the DateTime, there is a limitation with GDAL during the creation of shpfiles:
“Only Integer, Integer64, Real, String and Date (not DateTime, just year/month/day) field types are supported. The various list and binary field types cannot be created” – GDAL website

Therefore, for the for the shpfile there isn’t anything we can do at this time.

Now in regards to the KML, the KML should include the TimeStamp with the exported data.

Unfortunately, I don’t have a build of Avenza Maps 3.7.1, we are currently on Avenza Maps 3.13. However, if you can send me a copy of one of your map features I can see if there is an issue. I’m not entirely sure if it worked the same on the older version of Avenza Maps, but I can check to see if there is an issue. Please use our Support Form: support.avenzamaps.com and we will be able to assist you.
