Introducing: Gravity Forms File Renamer

Our newest perk allows you to automatically rename files uploaded to Gravity Forms via naming templates with support for dynamic values.

Big question. Is it “file name”, with a space, or “filename”, no space? 

Turns out both are entirely valid but it makes you realize how important naming is. It can provide clarity and organization or create confusion and disarray.

When it comes to naming files uploaded via Gravity Forms, we’ve got a new plugin that can help!

Say hello to File Renamer. 👋

With this new perk, your uploaded files can be given clear, descriptive names automatically, powered by flexible naming templates. No more file management headaches or wondering where a specific file is. An antidote to file chaos.

Keep your file uploads organized with dynamic subfolders, controlled directly in the naming template so you have access to all the same customizability as the filenames themselves.

So just how customizable are these naming templates?

  • Combine static values and user input with full support for Gravity Forms merge tags. 
  • Include the original filename and append a prefix/suffix.
  • Control when files are incremented and how files are deduplicated.

Powerful stuff! 

File Renamer integrates with your favorite perks.

File Renamer supports all core upload fields and works with the full Gravity Perks suite out-of-the-box. Use File Upload Pro to enhance the upload experience, include Unique IDs in your filenames, and store your renamed files in the Media Library.

    Does this plugin support Vietnamese filenames? Example: Nguyễn Văn Dũng – 0123456789.jpg. I tried demo above but it doesn’t work. Thank you.

      Hi Dung,

      Yes, you’re right. It appears to convert the file name to English. If you have an active Gravity Perks license, you can get in touch with us via our support form and submit a feature request and our developers can look into adding support for different languages.

      Hi Tasos,

      As long as Gravity Forms supports the Dropbox add-on, our Perks and Snippet should be compatible, including File Renamer. If you encounter any issues drop us a line through our support form.

      We use this with the Dropbox file upload and it works well.

      Only shortcoming is that we don’t seem to be able to generate ‘folders’ through the file renaming process. We still have to create them manually and select the folder in the settings.

      Ah, cool concept, Thad. I’ve logged a feature request for this. We’ll explore it in a future version.
