    Box.com integration - file rename on upload

    Asked by NYS_EFC on February 03, 2017 at 11:32 AM

    I've got a customized subfolder all set with a computed field.


    What I would like to do is rename the uploaded file as it is stored in BOX. Basically, when a user uploads the same file name into the SAME sub-folder, Box creates versions. I don't want versions. We need something like this:

    testupload.pdf -> testupload_1.pdf

    testupload.pdf -> testupload_2.pdf


    testupload.pdf -> testupload+timestamp.pdf


    testupload.pdf -> testupload+computed-field.pdf

    I've spent a little bit of time investigating this further but, unfortunately other than what is currently happening that is the default method.

    I'm sending a this as a feature improvement request to our developers for consideration and if there's something that can be done or added to do this we'll notify you here.
