copy and rename file with date

I'm not terribly familiar with power automate but I'm trying to automate a daily log. I have a master log copy saved and I am trying to automate the system so that at midnight each night a copy of the log is created with the file name being that days date. I've beat my head against a wall trying to sort this out so any suggestions would be very much appreciated.
