Use single Rmd to generate >1 output files that don't get overwritten with new runs?

Hi,
I am looking to run a report on a weekly basis, but want the output file to be saved so we have a repo of archived weekly reports.

The idea is to use an Rmd and schedule it to run every week, but by default it seems to overwrite the previous week's report. I tried generating html output files that had unique names (ie with a date) so it wouldn't be overwritten but that fails.

Any thoughts on how to programmatically reuse an Rmd to generate and store multiple output files over time?
