    The option to append a form field value into the file upload names before downloading them in the form submissions page

    Asked by kbaudelin on June 30, 2015 at 09:43 AM

    Ok, before we used "Adobe form central" and we can select all attachments of all answers from one form, download all of them and rename each attachment with one or more information in the form completed by the same person. 

    Is it possible to do that with Jotform or have you a solution to achieve the same result ?

    For example, when we received 150 CVs within one or two weeks, it's so more efficient for us to download in a same folder all CVs that would appoint at least the person's name. Like that we can preview each CV easily and quickly.

    Thank you for your help.

    Again, this is now in a new thread and I have just forwarded this to our developers. We can't promise any timeframe for this, but if there are updates, you should know it via this thread.

    Thanks

    Just to add to this, i would agree this function is needed.  Whilst the ability to download all the attachments is great via the form, to rename each file with a field from the form (in my example, i have photos of people uploaded who are named in the form.)  To be able to name each upload as opposed to what the original file name was (for the vast majority of mine, all the uploads are called image!) would save me a lot of time.

    Fingers crossed this gets sorted

    The feature is already requested, but honestly, it's currently not on the top of the list. But if there are updates, you should know it in this thread.

    For now, you may consider integrating your form to Dropbox, for example. This way, you can customize the folder/file name:
