Dynamically create log file with date in the name

Is it possible to write out a log file with custom parameters where it writes to a new file based on the date? Something like....

backup_job_name-"date +"%d-%m-%Y"".log

It appears the script doesn't run if that log-file isn't found, so I'm trying to dynamically create the file(s) before it runs.

What's the easiest way to acomplish?


rclone lsd . --log-level=DEBUG --log-file=/home/user01/rclone/log/`date +%Y%m%d.%I%M%S`.log

This is the response from rclone.

Does the directory exist?

That's what it was. Thanks. Wasn't sure if it could create the file, but didn't think about the directory.
