Filename Placeholders

The following table lists all the placeholders available for use in generating filenames for the various export types. The date and time placeholders reflect the time at which the information was exported. Most of the placeholders correspond to the formatting characters used in the PHP date() function. Note that some fields, like month and day names, will be outputted in the language of the current user and could potentially lead to invalid filenames.
