Change the file name before it is downloaded in Qlik Sense

Customers would like to add a file name field to the export image/ppt/pdf dialogue where the user can give the exported file a proper name. As it is now, you will get a cryptic file name when you export sheets/stories. Most likely is that the end-user will change the file name when the file is downloaded.

The default name could be the name of the chart/image/sheet/story followed by date and time.

Is there any solution for this now ?

How can we change the file name or put a default sheet name before downloading the excel file in Qlik Sense?

Hi,

I don't seem to be able to add a 'like' to this idea, even though the status is Open. Please can you consider this comment another like?
