    When using the Upload field can I customized the name of the file being uploaded in the form

    Asked by pangregorian on April 02, 2016 at 03:39 PM


    Is there a way to specify file names for images that are transferred through FTP? Currently, the default names aren't readily distinguishable; yes, they're unique but because they're all numbers it's hard to identify the users that submitted them.

    Hi Phil,

    Unfortunately there is no option for renaming the uploaded file/image within the Upload field.

    The end-user can only rename the picture before they upload it, and the file name will be the one that the Upload field will use on submission.

    I have forwarded a request ticket also to our higher team support to include such option on the upload field. We cannot provide you any ETA as to when this will be available, but we will announce it here when it does.
