Name a results file of Action with time Action was created?

Simple question with a (likely) complicated answer: I’d like to name the file I create in an Action with a timestamp (e.g. “filename-YYYYMMDD-HHMMSS.txt”), but I want the date to be the time that “OK” was clicked on the Action, not the time the Action was run on the computer (so that it is the same on every computer that runs the Action).

Is this possible?

Yes, you’d be looking to parse {parameter "action issue date" of action} into a timestamp value. It sounds like you already have something that would have parsed {now}, that should work the same. If not let me know and I can post something tonight.

Thanks, @JasonWalker! I’ll give it a shot and let you know, but it looks like exactly what I need.
