Not sure why you'd have an issue with creating two tasks? You wouldn't send the same report to the same user twice with only a name differentiator. Seems a weird requirement.
I know you can give reports friendly names when adding to a task but never tried to add the same one twice. if you can it would be set here.
The only way to add a timestampa in the output report file name is by enabling the dynamic naming for that report. The dynamic naming is a feature of the report, and cannot be ste in the task.
So the only solution is to clone the report, enable the dynamic naming in one and add both into the task.
About the task, please note that you can add the same report multiple times to the same task, but only with different output formats. So, for example, you can add the report Excel 1 two time one with .xlsx and the other with .xls output format, but you cannot add it two times both with .xlsx output format.
I hope this helps.

thanks all, that was my thinking before as well, just try to see if there is any better and quicker run option. the reason I want to do this is I want to send one version to archive with time stamp and the other to the current view folder. if I can do this in one task I can reduce the time to run the report.
