Flow which renames email attachments

I have an email that comes in every day at the same time. I've set up a flow that saves the email to onedrive then another that transferes it to sharepoint. My issue is that the file gets replaced every day. I need a flow that can add a date to the file name so it doesnt get replaced. Can this be done? Please help!

This worked, but i had to add it before the filename. Otherwise it appended it to the extention of the file and rendered it un-openable. Thanks for the help!
