Allow date placeholders in attachment folder path option

Use case or problem

I would like to configure Obsidian to store attachments and pasted images in a single folder using the “In the folder specified below” options. However, I’d rather not end up with a single folder full of hundreds of files, and instead would like to organize these attachments by date.

Proposed solution

Allow {date:YYYY} style placeholders in the attachments folder path.

For example if I wanted to group my attachments into folders by month I would use:

Attachments/{date:YYYY-MM}

Current workaround (optional)

None that I know of.
