add a date to the end of a file name

Post by alidan » Tue Jul 14, 2020 9:00 pm

A lot of what I do sees me downloading works in progress or full dumps of data that are not dated, just names of what the data is.
This sees me adding dates, usually when the torrent was uploaded to the end of the file name, but what date is used is inconsequential
I would like an option, maybe a button press on importing/loading/starting a torrent that could 'append date to filename' and a user modifiable date layout
if user modifiable is do hard, a simple year, date, month in any order would greatly help personally I use yyyy-mm-dd, I find time to be a worthless metric when its finer detail then this as it rarely comes up where the same file updates twice a day.

The main use for this is archive versioning, as some data from the sets gets removed in newer versions, this is why just picking the most recently acquired version and getting rid of the old is not ideal.

thanks in advance if this does make it in.
