Hello All,

I wan to append today's date with QWEB Report name.

For Ex:-

In Sales order, Quotation report name is Quotation_Order, But I want today's date with this name.

Like, Quotation_Order -> Quotation_Order_19_07_2016.

Any Suggestion from you is appreciated.

Thanks and Regards,

For that you can use this field "Save as Attachment Prefix" from Report menu.

See here: 

Put Prefix value as : 'Quotation_Order - '+time.strftime('%Y-%m-%d')

After setting this you will find your changes here:

Hope this will help you...

Are you referring to the filename of the PDF file? You can use a module on the app store for this purpose:

https://www.odoo.com/apps/modules/8.0/report_custom_filename/ by Therp/OCA.

Using this, you can create custom filenames. Is this what you were referring to?
