Download files with customized names

By default, when you download an asset from the Asset Library, Bynder displays the original filename as used when the file was uploaded. However, when you update this title later on, and want to download the file with the asset title, this is also possible.

Every asset has a file name, not always a title. When there is no title provided, the file name is used instead. But if there is a title, this will be shown by default.

You can also create your own naming convention for files so that their names are more meaningful to users who download the assets. You can do it by means of adding metaproperties to file name on download. For example, you can decide that when you download files they should have the following name: year-country-state-city-company-filetitle.jpg, so, for instance 2015-usa-massachussets-boston-bynder-example123.jpg.
