OE001 No date in filename
No date in filename #
|Problem ID||Manufacturer||Affected Firmware||Affected Hardware||Status|
Almost all Ecoacoustics software depends on having date stamps in the filenames of audio recordings.
Without them we don’t really know when a recording occurred and it is difficult to use that data for science and impossible to accurately archive it.
This is problem that can occur for many reasons.

Has an open feature request for inserting header dates into filenames: https://github.com/QutEcoacoustics/emu/issues/208
