Why the File names of scheduled dashboards always comes with a Timestamp

When I schedule a dashboard to email as excel, the name of the file in random in parts. For example I have a dashboard called "MTD_GL_Check_All" when I receive the email from the scheduler the file name is "MTD_GL_Check___All2018-07-03-0433050819"

Is this a setting I can change? Is there anyway that I can include a calculated month name to the file? Eg I run the report on the 1st of every month with time series set to month -1, can I get the system to recognise the month -1 name and add it to the file name? ie. run on 1st July, the file would be called "June MTD GL Check All".

In ElegantJ BI, export is enabled for both email as well as shared folder. The configuration is common for both. In case of a shared folder enabled export, we may have same file with same name that was exported before. Hence we append a timestamp of the time of file generation after the file name to resolve the overwrite conflicts and also to help a user know at what time the report was generated.
