How to add variables to a Scheduled Task filename?

To add a variable to the filename you simply need to add a special keyword into the name. This will then be replaced by GrabzIt’s Screenshot Tool when screenshot is created.

There are two variables that you can currently use:

  • {GrabzIt_URL} - this is replaced with the URL of the screenshot being taken. Note that the URL is sanitized so that it will work as a windows filename.
  • {GrabzIt_Timestamp_UTC+1} - this is replaced with a timestamp representing the current time. The +1 denotes the offset in hours from UTC and can be changed to another offset such as -5.

So for instance you could use these variables to create filenames like:

{GrabzIt_URL}.png
{GrabzIt_URL}_{GrabzIt_Timestamp_UTC-8}.docx
Taken_{GrabzIt_Timestamp_UTC-8}.pdf

Which when processed could create filenames like:

http_www_example_com.png
http_www_example_com_7_15_2019_12_13_16_AM.docx
Taken_7_15_2019_12_13_16_AM.pdf
