Connector Sharepoint based on name not uniqueld

It would be interesting to retrieve a file name instead of the uniqueld in Sharepoint. I have file that I receive on a weekly basis (same format and same name) that I upload for our Qlik dashboard. If I drop the file under sharepoint uniqueld is changing, not the file name.

@RV2 I think this might be possible already by using the list files table to first find the ID based on the file name, will just require a bit of scripting.

This is available already. You can use the sharepoint metadata connector to get listFILES, add filename as a variable, then load FROM sharepoint.com/sldfkajlsdf/(vfile);
