I have a file task that moves a file (variable) fro  Inbound folder to a processed folder

I would like to also rename that file in the process to the same filename.csv to filename_yyyyMMddmmss.csv

This can be done by using a ForEach Iterator to iterate through the files and the "File System Task" with a "Rename File" configuration to perform the rename and/or file move once the processing is complete. You can look at the details in my post here:

In summary, you will need a variable to build the new file name with a string similar to the one below (which is for yyyyMMdd, but you can extend it for mmss as well):
SUBSTRING(@[User::FileName], 1, FINDSTRING(@[User::FileName],".",1) -1 ) + (DT_WSTR,4)YEAR(GETDATE()) + (DT_WSTR,2)MONTH(GETDATE()) + (DT_WSTR,2)DAY(GETDATE())
