EDIMGR: Add date/time column to the listviews/listboxes of the In and Out drawer documents

When viewing documents in the In and Out drawers, we very often need to sort the documents by "date/time processed" to get an overview of the latest processed documents.

However, only these columns are available:

As workaround, we sometimes populate the DocumentName or RefData fields with the processing date, but at a cost of sacrificing this field to display other valuable business information. And this approach requires coding in the import and export maps.

Therefore, we would like to have a date/time column that contains the processed timestamp. The date/time format should be should be "yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss", which is ISO 8601 compliant, and unambiguous. Displaying the date/time string in this format also allows the date/time column to be sorted chronologically without additional logic
