    Excel Report: past date has been used in the file name instead of the present date

    Asked by LyndaAbel on May 24, 2017 at 11:41 AM

    Lending a bit of confusion when using the generated file name, the submissions export filename consistently uses the previous day's date.

    E.g. I just exported and the filename is "PAC- Order  School Supplies (2017-05-23)" instead of "...(2017-05-24)".

    I can replicate this even though my Timezone setting is correct. Let me create a ticket about this. If there are updates, you should know it through this thread.

    For the meantime, you can just disregard the date or simply correct it manually. That doesn't affect anything in the exported file or the submissions page.
