User Story

As a researcher doing many exports, I’d like a unique file name for exports so that they are easier to keep track of.


  • We get a proliferation of export.zip / export(1).zip, etc files over time because DataShop uses the same name (export.zip) for the export each time. (Ruth Wylie, 12/07/2009, User Meeting)
    • One possible solution: export_2010_01_19_151509.zip (date-time uniquely names the file)
