Custom ID

There are so many topics already on Zettel IDs that it's difficult to know where to post further comment, but since my suggestion is quite simple I thought it best to start a new thread.

It started like this: The timestamp format 202201041342 is hard-wired into The Archive. I find 220104-1342 to be easier to grasp (as well as shorter). There are probably almost as many preferences for how to format an ID as there are users. It seems to me that a default ID option field, perhaps using date tokens, would fit quite naturally into Advanced Prefs, and could make a lot of users happy.
