Can I add an automatic timestamp to output filename? (Export to Spreadsheet)

Sometimes I run a pipeline several times in a day. To help keep my output organized, in Export to Spreadsheet, I’ve been manually typing in a prefix before each run. Is there a way to automatically include time and date information in the output filenames?


There’s no way to do that automatically for the file names, but each time you run CP it’s encoded into the Experiment spreadsheet.

The only automated thing you can do is put it into a subfolder based on Metadata, so you could keep your stuff organized based on that if you have one Metadata tag that works per experiment, but that’s it. Sorry!
