Use created_at in Ecto

You can use created_at in Ecto/phoenix app with timestamps/1. When migrating data from a rails application to a phoenix application you will have many tables with a created_at column.

defmodule Phoenix.Accounts.User do
  use Ecto.Schema
  import Ecto.Changeset

  schema "users" do
    field :email, :string
    field :password, :string, virtual: true, redact: true
    field :hashed_password, :string, redact: true
    field :confirmed_at, :utc_datetime

    timestamps(inserted_at: :created_at, type: :utc_datetime)
  end

end
