Pega Marketing to output to file with date stamp included in the filename?
We are implementing Pega Marketing, and we will need to output the result of Campaigns to a flat file and pass over to printer house for printing of DM.
Is there anyway of naming the output file such that it will contain the date/time stamp in the filename? We like to generate a unique file for each of the campaign run so that we are able to rely on the file in the event of any dispute arises.

There is currently no direct way in the product to achieve this currently. What is possible today is to create a output finalization extension using the Advanced section of a file template. There you can specify an activity to run on file finalization. That activity could copy the file to a location or name of your choosing that includes today's date. See the user guide for 'Configuring File and Table Finalization' here: https://docs.pega.com/pega-marketing-731-user-guide
