    To my knowledge, there's no way to reduce the URL to its friendly format. Note that I stated "To my knowledge" because there may well be a prefix that can be added to the tag, just like when you want the actual image displayed you would use {IMG:assignmentFile}. Perhaps there's something like {FILENAME:assignmentFile} but I'll have to submit a ticket to our Level 2 team to see if there's one.

    Thanks.

    Interestingly enough, the notification received displays just the filename. So, it's an issue affecting the thank you page.

    Anyway, I've submitted the ticket.

    Hello bluewhaleshark.

    abajan is correct.  You can now use the format to only show the filename to show only the filename:

    {FILENAME:uploadedFile}

    If you have other questions, please do let us know.
