    Also, when downloading, the file does not having the original name of the
    upload, and has a series of 5 numbers and letters preceding the original
    file name. This is a problem when the file name has a meaning and it is
    useful for sorting and identifying the source of upload. It is possible to
    modify it, and if you need those number to put them at the end of the
    original file name instead of at the beginning?

    The random characters are added (prepended) to the file names from the widget that you are using (Drag and Drop Upload).

    If you use the File Upload element from the list of elements in the FORM BUILDER, the file names will not change at all.

    I will make a request to our developers if it is possible for the files to keep the original file name or if the random character can be added to the end of the file name (appended) instead of in the beginning.

    We will let you know via this thread if there is an update on this.

    Hi. The issue has been fixed. We have added a new optional feature "Overwrite file" for this widget which will overwrite files if they have the same names or it will keep the original files names if uploaded files have different names.
