Custom Filename and description for shared files


Custom Filename and description for shared files

I was wondering if it is possible or does Egnyte have plans to allow users to post a custom name and custom description for the file shared.  For example, if the name of the file is "",  I would like the name of the file be displayed as "Zipped MSI installer for program" and the link to the file will continue to be to "" and to include a description below the file name to say for example, "This MSI installer for windows 10 only."

Re: Custom Filename and description for shared files

Hello @Johnatai ,

Thank you for writing to the community. 

At the moment we have a way to add comments to a file. Description can be added to the folders on the UI but not the files. Custom filename is not a feature on Egnyte as of now. 

However, I do understand what you are looking for in this feature.

I recommend submitting this as a feature request in the Ideas board. This will put the idea directly in front of our Products team and can also attract votes onyour suggestion from other members of the community. They can show their support for this feature there.
