I've started using the File Request feature recently. I upgraded my dropbox from the Plus to the Professional plan to have more tools for specific file sharing.
I put out a File Request to my collaborator only to find that Dropbox automatically prepends the uploader's name to every single file they upload. For my purposes, this is a terrible "feature". I am trying to receive hundreds of files from one person, and having to sit there and relabel every single one by hand is not useful at all.
The files I am receiving link to a master file and the link works according to the file names. So the file names MUST stay the same for this to work, otherwise the whole house of cards falls apart. Needless to say, this is very important for proper collaboration to occur.
Can you please add an option to turn the renaming "feature" on or off per file request link? Let your users decide if they want their files renamed! I'm sure it's helpful for some, but it is not helpful for all... 😉
A quick search shows that this request first came up over four (4!) years ago. Please implement this ASAP. Otherwise I'll have to look for another file sharing service.
