    Is there a way to set up jotform to allow for custom file names for uploads?

    Say for instance, John Doe uploads his resume within his application.  When John Doe submits his application, instead of John Doe's resume being saved as some long file name, could the settings be customized so that, upon the upload, the resume file is named "John Doe Resume"?

    The files are uploaded with a unique name. This will avoid overwriting the files with same names. 

    Jotform does not support renaming the files or allow to prepend / append field data to file name with the file upload tool.

    However, if you are uploading the files to dropbox, the files can be uploaded to customer folder names.
