email dashboards daily with same filename

HI

I have setup the dashboard to be emailed daily as a pdf using the "email" feature in GA and that part works fine. The name of the attachmnt is the format of "dashboard name + date range". How do I configure it to not show the date range in the filename? I am having this email sent to a folder everyday and I just want it to replace the pdf file with that name instead of creating a new file every night. (It creates a new file because the data range is unique every day)

 

Instead of  "dashboard overview 20160131-20160301.pdf" I would like it to only be "dashboard overview.pdf"

 

Thanks!

Swati

You can not configure GA to omit the date range, but on your server you can have a cron job run at night that would take the new report rename it and then move it to the location of the folder.
