Rendered report name with date

Hi all,

 

I need to create a rendered report with a date stamp in its filename (ex.: file name + DateTimeToday()).

Is this doable?

 

Thanks!

Hi mate,

 

Hope the attached workflow helps.! It appends the current date time to the PDF output

 

Regards,

For anyone else looking at a similar solution but for multiple reports, please note that while @ram_neel's solution works very well in this situation (and should be marked as the solution), it will not work if you're trying to generate multiple reports grouped by a certain category such as product type etc. as it will group them all into the one since you're grouping on date only. The solution to this is to create a new field and append the category + datetimenow() function then group on that in your report generation. See my attached workflow for an example.

hey thanks for that and guess what this was the first time I ever played around with the reporting tools  !
