What is the correct procedure for dating an invention log?

Sign and Date the Pages of Your New Invention Log

Sign and date the pages of your new invention log as you fill them to establish track record of your invention activities.

Never sign or date any page before using or finishing that page. Also, never back-date pages. Back-dating is a dishonest practice that consists of placing a date on information about a new invention idea so that it appears you performed the documented work earlier than you actually did. Back-dating could affect your rights and call into question the date of conception of your idea.
