Default Macro Name

From iMacros
Jump to: navigation, search

New recordings are stored as files with the name you choose in Settings under New macro name. By default, this is #Current and the extension is .iim. You may however, change this default to any name you prefer. Besides that, you have the option to create a new file every time you record a macro, by un-checking Overwrite new macro. In this case, iMacros will create a new file and add a number to each new version, like #Current(1).iim, #Current(2).iim, etc.

It is also possible to add a timestamp to the filename. The syntax is similar to that of !NOW, except for a few a differences:

  • the date/time string should be between angle brackets "<>", as in macro<ddmmyy_hhnnss> (produces macro180717_120433.iim)
  • only allowed character for filenames are accepted. Not allowed characters are
    • < (less than)
    • > (greater than)
    •  : (colon)
    • " (double quote)
    • / (forward slash)
    • \ (backslash)
    • | (vertical bar or pipe)
    •  ? (question mark)
    • * (asterisk)
  • contrary to !NOW, it accepts spaces, but no <SP>
  • empty brackets <> produces the ISO8601 format, without colons. That is: 2017-07-18T120433.iim
