Download files with customized names

  • Updated

By default, when you download an asset from the Asset Library, Bynder displays the original filename as used when the file was uploaded. However, when you update this title later on, and want to download the file with the asset title, this is also possible.

You can also create your own naming convention for files so that their names are more meaningful to users who download the assets. You can do it by means of adding metaproperties to file name on download. For example, you can decide that when you download files they should have the following name: year-country-state-city-company-filetitle.jpg, so, for instance 2015-usa-massachussets-boston-bynder-example123.jpg.

You can also choose to leave the Bynder asset title out of the download name completely. For example, year-country-state-city-company.jpg. In case the metaproperties are not filled in for an asset upon download the download name will revert back to the original filename only.


  • Every asset has a file name, not always a title. When there is no title provided, the file name is used instead. But if there is a title, this will be shown by default.

  • The title cannot include a question mark, as it is a reserved character in HTTP protocol. Including it could result in the file not downloading. 
  • The download name can include capitals depending on the labels of your metaproperty options. For example, 2022-France-Paris-Bynder.jpg or 2022-france-paris-bynder.jpg
