    Add Unique ID to the filename of uploaded file in Dropbox integration

    Asked by Skowhegan on May 29, 2014 at 12:31 PM
    I'm seconding this request. We need it desperately at my place of employment. Sorting without renaming the files is a huge stumbling block for me. It seems numerous people have been asking for this feature for a long time--i think it's an important addition. I will be checking back frequently to see if thishas been implemented.

    I have opened a ticket, as I understand you are also requesting a way  to add Unique IDs to the filename of uploaded file at dropbox. Such as :

    Uploaded filename = "testfile1.doc"

    Unique ID = "20140001"

    Output = "20140001testfile1.doc"


    Like I said to the other user, hopefully this will be implemented soon, but I cannot give you an ETA.

    I mean any way to rename files instead of folders would be helpful. It seems crazy that this is not a feature.
