I use a linux script (of course outside digikam):

exiftool -progress -r "-Directory<DateTimeOriginal" -d "%Y%m%d" .

for *photos*, exiftool do all the job.

for videos or facebook downloaded photos without exifs, I use a similar 
script, based on the file date:

for a ; do
	b=$(date -r $a +20%y%m%d)
     mkdir -p $b
     mv "$a" $b
