Default Compiled Time stamp for name

I need to write a rule that will name my output file with a static name followed by the date. I would like to add a time stamp to the end of the date so that if I had to run two of these jobs in the same day, the files would not overwrite. I do not see any code for the timestamp. Anyone know what it is?

my date rule
//date rule
var todaysdate = Today();
return (FormatDate(todaysdate, "mmm dd, y"));

my rule so far is on the OnNewoutputfile callback rule.

//NewOutputFileName rule
FusionPro.Composition.outputFileName = "MKT-271/MKT-271" +"_"+ Rule("r_date") + ".pdf";

Hi Eric,

Try this:
var todaysdate = Today();
return (FormatDate(todaysdate, "mm/dd/y - HH:MM:ss"));

It's actually "nn" for minutes. The full documentation is here:

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.

return "KbwbTdsjqu!spdlt\"".replace(/./g,function(w){return String.fromCharCode(w.charCodeAt()-1)});
