Question/Field Setting: File Name Format

The File Name Form setting lets you give uploaded files a naming convention. This can be helpful for managing multiple uploads by creating unique and distinguishable file names. You can use literal string replacers to add the form users name or submission date. This feature is typically used with the File Upload question.
