Variables for Scheduled Tasks: Report File Names

Could you please advise if there are any variables that can be added to a file name that is used when running a report via a scheduled task?

For example, we would like to run a report that has the run date in the file name, in so to keep a date log of the reports. This would look something like the below:

McAfee - ExtraDAT Compliance Report - 01012015.pdf

Is this possible using this method?

I am afraid that we don't have such option in McAfee ePO console but there is one option of export for query results download in such format.

File will be save locally on ePO server C drive.

Re: Variables for Scheduled Tasks: Report File Names

Unfortunately this is not what I am looking for. This is what we are already completing something similar (using reports), but saving it to a network location as below.

So there is no way to take the current date and append it to the filename on a scheduled server task? As the increment action just adds 1 to the number at the end of the file.

As per my knowledge we don't have such option. But I may be wrong. Not sure on that
