1965877 - Is it Possible to Change File Name of an Output PDF to Desired Format

Symptom

You want to change the file name of an output document  to desired format, so that on release of document, system sends file name in this format.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Customer Invoicing work center.
  2. Go to the Invoice Documents view.
  3. Edit a document which is in Released status.
  4. Click on View All and then to Output History Tab.
  5. Click on a pdf document and save.

The document saves in the format Customer-Invoice_ABC_YYYYMMDD-HMSUTC.pdf.

Here H, M , S stands for hour, min and sec. Document would be sent to the recipient in the same format.

Cause

There is no fine-tuning or configuration which influences this behavior in the system.

Resolution

As a workaround, from output history, you can manually save the PDF document with desired file name and then mail it to your recipient.
