    Hi there.

    We’ve been using QuForm for years now, and very happy with the product.

    We’ve recently been requested to create a website where people will be able to upload their verification documentation (ID, Proof of residence, etc) to a website via a simple form. Of course, we immediately purchased another QuForm licence.

    Thing is, as these documents are really rather sensitive, we don’t want fraudsters to be able to guess the filenames all too easily.

    As an example, when you upload a file via the form, it saves the file in this format:

    https://outbox.co.za/wp-content/uploads/quform/4/2022/02/OUTBOXED_Pricelist.pdf

    Is there a way for the filename to be change upon upload, so it’s something like random text being added:

    https://outbox.co.za/wp-content/uploads/quform/4/2022/02/OUTBOXED_Pricelistzg2SlT-l98_ylG7TXlLg14VgT.pdf

    I know this hardly counts as encryption (what would be the correct terminology for the above anyway?)

    Is there any setting, suggestion or plugin that could help secure the uploaded files?

    Kind regards.
    JC from Outboxed.

    Thank you very much for this! It worked like a charm.

    If I want to add multiple field IDs, do I just add it like the below, or do I need to repeat the entire code block every time, each with their unique field ID?

    add_filter('quform_upload_filename_4_25', 'quform_upload_filename_4_27', function ($filename)
