Create New Metadata Attributes

Hello all!

I’ve got a site up and running where my client wants to be able to showcase upcoming events. Currently, I can tag these posts as “events” and collect all of those together. Love it.

BUT, I would like a custom metadata field where I can enter the date for the event. That way, I can sort the results of that collection by the date of the event (rather than the date of the post).

Can anyone think of a way to do this?

Thanks so much for your help!!!
