Use original filename as asset title

You can use different naming conventions for your assets. For example, you can add a title to your assets so that when you download the asset, this title will be used as the filename. Find out below how you can use the original filename as naming convention for your assets.

Asset detail view

We can display the original filename of the asset in the Info tab of the asset detail view. Contact your Customer Success Manager if you want this feature to be enabled for your portal.

During download

By default Bynder downloads assets with the original file name. Contact your Customer Success Manager if you want to use the asset title inside Bynder as file name instead. If prefixes and suffixes have been set up for your derivatives, you can also discuss with your Customer Success Manager whether you want to have them included in the filename or not during download.

During upload

Below you can find the steps explaining how you can set the filename as title during upload. Also you can read more about the two filename customizations that we can enable for your portal during upload.
