Date in Filename template

Hello,

While using batch rendering i have noticed its not possible to put a date in the filename template. Having a timestamp is great but everyday you have a chance of having the exact same file name. So i would like to add the date as well.

A quick 'solution' would be to just put the date into the filename template manually everyday but that is going to be missed or overlooked so a parameter would be more stable/safe.

I tried to find a solution myself but my programming knowledge is very limited.
https://www.lua.org/pil/22.1.html Having tried the parameters in this link i guess they dont exist within Batch rendering or just dont work.

Is it possible to get the %x and %c into the batch rendering?
