    File Uploads

    Hi,

    I have an area working as a drop of area for students files, of which is working fine apart from because they can't see each others files in this area they often recive errors as they save files as the same name. For example they get set homework as 'questions.docx'

    Is there a way to make it so when they upload files to this area the file renames its self to 'Username_questions.docx'

    I see there is the random suffix generator for IOS - (Could I use this a temporary fix? or is it only available for IOS)

    Thank you,
    Adam

    The suffix generator is the ideal solution, it was meant for iOS but will work in any browser that supports the new HTML5 upload button
