How do I Rename Uploaded Videos?

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

I have uploaded videos of individuals.  They have uploaded as MVI_0501.mp.  I understand why they uploaded that way.  However, I would like to rename them to the individual's name who is on the recording.  I have 30 such videos and I am going to share the link to the folder with one person who will be sending the videos out to the respective persons.  I can see from other help tips how to get to the "Rename" dropdown.  However, once I do that all it does is check the file and then it doesn't show me where to type the new name.  If I click on the video it takes me to the play screen.  I can't change it there either.

How do I rename a video file from start to finish?  Thanks.

Hi Fiona -

I didn't realize I would get such a quick reply!  I ended up calling Dropbox support.  However, I ended up figuring it out on my own while on the call.  It's very weird but Dropbox acted differently for the first 3 videos I tried to rename.  The first one which I did while on the call confused the support person because it shouldn't have behaved that way.  The second one I think acted more like what the support person was expecting.  In any event, problem solved!  Thanks for responding so quickly!
