I am exporting an object from my DW to Box on a daily cadence. I would like to name it something different than Skyvia's auto-generated name. When I name the file under 'Target File Name' the package does not autogenrate a timestamp on the file which causes Box to overide the previous package run. Is there any solution to this?

Hello Tony,

Thank you for submittibg the request with us.


The Append timestamp to the file name check box is applied only for export tasks with the default file name.
Please note that if you specify a custom file name, it will not be followed by the timestamp even if this check box is selected for the package. For more details please refer to Should you have any questions, please contact us.
