Uploaded files keep their original file name

Uploaded files will keep their existing names, instead of being renamed with a random string of characters assigned by Elfsight.


It's important that my customers are able to download files with their original file names, and I'm sure others are in the same situation.

    Hello Angela,

    Thank you for adding your request!

    Your idea totally makes sense, and I'm very sorry that at the moment uploaded files do not keep the original name.

    We'll try our best to consider this feature for our future updates.

    Thanks a lot for helping us!
