    Can I append the Submission ID to the filename of the exported Excel file?

    ... and while I'm at it ... it would even better if all of these filenames were appended with the SubmissionID.  : )

    We can put this up as a Feature Request too but as early as now, there's a high chance it won't be accepted IMHO. The main reason is due to the fact that your use case is only specific to your needs. If this was something that other users would use, we can certainly consider and review it. On the other hand, if someone wants to change the filename of a file, regardless if it's generated from us or not, all they usually do is rename it manually.

    As an alternative, have you seen our API documentation? Perhaps you can utilize our API instead of using Excel as a middleman.

    Yep.  No problem.  Just thought I'd ask.  Thanks.
