Active Record automatically timestamps create and update if the table has fields created_at/created_on or updated_at/updated_on.

Timestamping can be turned off by setting

  <tt>ActiveRecord::Base.record_timestamps = false</tt>

Keep in mind that, via inheritance, you can turn off timestamps on a per model basis by setting record_timestamps to false in the desired models.

  class Feed < ActiveRecord::Base
    self.record_timestamps = false
    # ...

Timestamps are in the local timezone by default but can use UTC by setting

  <tt>ActiveRecord::Base.default_timezone = :utc</tt>
