Hi everyone,

I want to rename the uploaded files to the survey based on other fields entry.

Keep the file original uploaded name. (secure it by removing specific characters)
Add a naming convention before the file name when storing it.

For example

#1 – The file name is: « Guideline for child and adolescents » and it is the third file uploaded by Italy ;
speaking of topics Reproductive ; Child and Adolescents. The file should be then stored as :
« ITA03R__CA- Guideline for child and adolescents »


I tried searching this topic in the forum but did not get any satisfactory answer

Hi,

while I do not see any reason in renaming the UPLOADED file, you get in the DOWNLOADED files the anwerID and a key.

See:
https://www.limesurvey.org/forum/can-i-do-this-with-limesurvey/114111-can-i-group-uploaded-files-by-participant-into-individual-folders-in-the-zip

This should be sufficient to add some more information to the filename by merging.

Regards
Joffm

Reason #1: People are not aware of the renamed files inside the archive.
Reason #2: The files are not downloaded via the LimeSurvey function. Since LS isn't offering any automatic/triggered exporting, there is a need to transport uploaded files via a script.

Applying a file mask and allow to define filenames (not only for uploads but also for downloads), sound like a feature request. When such a systematic name scheme is applied, the storage of the files shouldn't be inside the webroot.
