Rename multiple pictures at the same time

Rename multiple pictures at the same time

hoping to be able to rename multiple files soon. Changing each one, one by one takes for ever. All pictures from phone that get backed up come with the stock numbers from the phone, so no way to change it on your phone...hoping you guys can have that on your next update.

Hi there @Dj Pup Dawg - thanks for your sharing your thoughts on this.

 

Your idea will need some additional support before we can share your suggestion with the team.

 

I'm updating the status here to encourage more users to back it up!

This is a crucially needed improvement.  Currently, renaming one file at a time takes about 20 seconds per file.  When I have more than, say, 10 to rename, I have to download them to my Mac, unzip, rename, re-upload, then delete the original ones with the old name.  This is quite time consuming compared to other cloud solutions (especially Microsoft's OneDrive).

For some reason, I can't upvote this idea.  That's probably why it shows "zero" votes.  Please fix.  This is one of the more important (and easy) improvements.  Alternatively, if Renaming a file only took 1 second, like in OneDrive, then that would make it much more palatable, but 20 seconds is like going back to the 1960s.
