    Is it possible to Change File Name Automatically Upon Upload?

    Asked by Eyebar on March 10, 2017 at 03:33 PM

    I am using the "Unique ID" Widget to create individual customer ID numbers.

    My form allows a file upload.

    I am going to have the auto-ftp option to ftp the uploaded file to my server on every submission.

     

    Question:

    Is there a way to automatically change the original file name being uploaded, to the Unique Widget generated ID number?

    The goal is to have the file changed to have the new generated Widget number once uploaded to my server.

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to change the file name with regular upload field. But you can do that with DropBox or GoogleDrive integration.

    Here are the guides on how to integrate:

    Hope it helps.

    Let us know if you have any further questions.

    Thank you!
