I am trying to zip up files into a zip file. I want this zip file to have a name that includes a timestamp(eg. "zipfile"). Can someone guide me as to how to accomplish this?

For your output file under the Zip Task ... just put this as the parameter:

${Concat( 'zipfile ', currentDate( 'MM-dd-yyyy' ), '.zip' ) }
