    Hi, 

     

    I have a form where users can submit several photo's from there holiday. But as we frequently use those submitted files it is necessary to rename the submitted files with usable keywords. Like destination, name of photographer, date stamp and a unique number. 

    Do you guys have an idea how I can rename the uploaded files with these data the user submitted? 

    link to form: https://form.jotformeu.com/71522448413351 

     

    Many thanks! 

    Best regards!

    Unfortunately, it's not possible to rename the the files before you submit them. The upload file widget will pick up whatever name the files originally have before submit. 

    You could leave a note on your form for your submitters to rename the files in a certain format before uploading them. 

    Hope this helps, let us know if you need any further help.
