    Is it possible to customize the filename of a pdf I download after submission?

    Asked by tlujan0001 on March 25, 2015 at 02:22 PM

    Is there a way to use a different naming convention for the pdf filename upon download? For example, to name the file after the person's name?

    Unfortunately it is not possible to change the file name of the PDF of your submission prior to downloading it.  Since the file is created based on the submission ID, it is also how the file is named.  This can be changed after the file has been downloaded but cannot be set to something different beforehand.

    Let us know if you have any further questions and we will be happy to help.
