Hi Team,

We are trying to achieve below use-case


We have created a daily Report broadcast and sending the file to the SharePoint portal as email. we have programmed it to read the received email extract the file and place it at xyz location,

Then we have Share Point URL published across audience, when user hits the URL it checks for the PDF file with hardcoded name Eg; Daily Summary.pdf, This is the file which we have received from YF broadcast and placed it at XYZ location.


The problem we are facing is, The file that has been sent from broadcast appends the The Date String in filename eg; Daily Summary 11-Oct-2017.pdf, and due to this URL fails to load the file because it search for Daily Summary.pdf.


So we are looking for a way to remove the date string from the file name, so that url can load file.


Checked in Configuration section But no luck,


Is it possible to achieve what we a trying from some other config changes ?


Thanks,

Abhijeet

Hello Abhijeet,

Thanks for reaching out with your scenario. At present, there's no manner in which to configure this. Interestingly enough, it's possible when configuring an FTP Upload:

Hence, I"ve logged this as an Idea for an Enhancement.

The only manner I can think of that would work around this issue would be manually or programatically altering the filename after receiving it in your SharePoint.

Thanks Ryan,

It would be useful feature for broadcast as well. I'll check for workarounds from my side.
