    Hi,

    Unfortunately this is not possible at this time. You could always give instructions to your visitors on how they could change the file name before it is uploaded, but you could not be able to change the file name through the file upload widget nor afterwards through some panel.

    Now depending on what you want to do / why you want to change the name, there might be some alternatives that we can suggest?

    I will however escalate this as a possible feature to our developers and if such feature becomes available they will update you through this thread.

    Do let us know if you have any further questions.

    Best Regards,
    Ben

    I wish you a text written in the text box would be the file name.
    This would be important to me, because lines Uploading to others.
    The file names exist: basic engineering concepts, Drawing értelmezsé, Gears, etc..
    A text box beíratom number of the item you would like and, if you spend your Dropbox: 1 basic engineering concepts, etc.

    Hi,

    OK, thank you for letting us know, but as I have mention this might be something our developers create as a new feature and it might take some time for that as well.
    Now you could place several different file upload widgets and edit the label next to them to be called in any manner that you like, so every file that ends up uploaded would be 'categorized' for you, if this would help you?Best Regards,
    Ben

    Hi Todd,

    I have moved your question to a new thread where we would be able to raise this to our developers, allowing them to see how many people are interested in having this available as a feature.

    You will find the thread here: http://www.jotform.com/answers/489578 and we will be responding to it shortly.
