We've had folks contacting us about whether or not they can name their transfers in their transfer overview and how to ensure their files are ordered in a specific way and while we don't yet have a naming and sorting system implemented in our interface, there is a workaround you can take advantage of to name and sort your transfers.
To name your transfer, all you need to do is add a SPACE to the front of the file name and then that file name will be what your transfer is named in your transfer overview.
Let's look into why this is:
Firstly, to keep things simple, your files are sorted alphabetically when you add them to your transfer window and then when you hit transfer, they are sent in those order.
So if you have files named "Bob", "Carl and "Alice" and you add them to your transfer window. The files will be reordered "Alice", "Bob" and "Carl".
Well, there is a little something called ASCII. ASCII is a character encoding standard for electronic communication. Here is a table which shows the characters in order.
By looking at this table, you can see the the SPACE key is the earliest value in the table as it appears in the top left. This means, if we consider this while keeping in mind we sort our files based on this table and that the first file in the transfer list will become the name of the transfer in the transfer overview, you could just add a SPACE to the front of your file name which you want to be the transfer name.
You could also add an empty .txt file and call it ' YourTransferName.txt' and just add a SPACE in front of the name. Just include this in your transfer list and you will have named your transfer!
If things are not clear, you can always reach out to us to ask any questions.
