You can insert this wildcards like this example below:


So, for this example, you would get a file name like this:


Here is the list of things that you can insert in your Input TextFields in Distribution Service:

    Hello. I have a requirement where I need to display start date and end date in the subject line of the email. I get these values from prompts. But when I use the prompts, the dates are displayed in date time format. Is there a solution for this ?

    I am also wondering if there’s a workaround for this. I display the dates in text boxes too. Is it possible to use the values/data/content displayed in text boxes in the email subject line ?
