Auto Rename

FTP Voyager can automatically rename files before they reach their destination. This page lists all the naming rules that can be applied to all file transfers that occur for any site. Auto-Rename rules can be configured for:

  1. Uploaded Files
  2. Downloaded Files
  • Many options may be overridden within the Auto Rename category within the "Advanced Options" of a site profile located within the Site Profile Manager.
  • In order for your Auto-Rename rules to be applied to the uploaded or downloaded files, you must enable it on the File Handling page of a site profile that is located within the Site Profile Manager. For example, enable "Automatic Rename on Upload" to enforce Auto-Rename rules for file uploads.

Buttons are located at the top of each list that manage the corresponding Auto-Rename rules. Take note, that items within the list are processed sequentially from top-to-bottom (e.g., the rules of one item may be overridden by the rules of another that is located below it). The buttons located within each list are described below:
