I thought so too.  I'd like to record creation in the logbook drawer
when I capture a TODO and have adjusted my templates to do so.  They
just include the logbook drawer literally, like so

  "* TODO %?
  - State \"TODO\"       from \"\"           %U

I thought that org-treat-insert-todo-heading-as-state-change would be
able to create the drawer for me but no such luck.  Duh, capturing is
not a state change now is it.

Anyway, is there a smarter way to log creation at capture?

Thanks in advance,
