<Date Now y> Captures the year where the action has been executed

<Date Creation d> Captures the day in month where the file was created

<Date Creation m> Captures the month where the file was created

<Date Creation y> Captures the year where the file was created

<Date Modified d> Captures the day in month where the file was last modified

<Date Modified m> Captures the month where the file was last modified

<Date Modified y> Captures the year where the file was last modified
