I am using FFCore 6.0.2. When I define within the Save node the filename to be $FFwfJob.jobName$$FFtimeStamp.Format(false,true,-,numpad,numpad, false, false).substring(0,5)$, I obtain the filename (for job named "atlanta") of "atlanta02-26 .pdf".
To exclude the time you can paste this line into a text file and save it to a batch file (.bat):
copy %1 "C:\Temp\filename_%date%.pdf"
Replace your Save node in the workflow with an External Process where you use the batch file.
According to the help guide 'timeStamp' is an unsupported variable for support variable operations. It doesn't appear that any manipulations I make (format, substring, etc.) changes the timeStamp variable. I'm wondering if there is a way to just add the current day, but not the time in the file name?
You could save the file using for instance:
This will give you date and time down to milliseconds.
$FFtimeStamp$ can also be formatted. For instance:
will give you the name:
Please see Process Variable Options in the Help Guide.
I have a workflow that collects more than a dozen types of letter documents (all with different file names) and batches and joins them into a single PDF output. These PDF files are then sent to a specified folder. I'd like to be able to change the single PDF file name to a static and generic output name and then concatenate the timestamp after that. Is this possible? Please send any suggestions. Thank you.
