Ability to include a timestamp on exported XLS files


Description of the enhancement required:

Date Time Stamp as data field in the exported file (accurate to DDMMYYYY HHMMSS)


An example of the enhancement:
Formula which captures the current system time at time of export would be highly appreciated.

How would it help the business process:
The customer server would be able to distinguish between exports taken at 4:05pm and 5:23pm of same day without having to check the properties of file.

  • Status changed to: In Review
  • Additional Requests:

    - For a tenant, allow WSA to define a default time zone

    - Have an option to enable exporting a file with the datetime appended to the name

  • I'd personally prefer the more sortable YYYYMMDD HHMMSS suffix akin to how my phone saves photos, but it would simply be nice to have a few choices available. 

  • Hello, could someone please kindly provide an update on this? Our users think it would be very valuable as well. Thank you!
