Photo Metadata in Collector App

When downloading photos taken in the Collector App, I've noticed that the 'Date Taken' property is not populated as it normally would be when taking a photo. This would be a really helpful feature to have when using this app for collecting perishable data such as during/after a flood or similar disaster. These data time stamps are huge when it comes to defensibly, documentation, and correlating flood impacts to hydrograph stages.  Does anyone know why Collector does not populate exif data? Editor Tracking is great, but having the photo embedded with these data seems like a practice that has no need to be revised. It is very convenient to have this metadata live with the photo.
