Good day, I have some SharePoint list. The List has multi-line field "Attachments" with the option "advanced rich text (rich text with pictures, tables, and hyperlinks)". And when I create new list item, I select "Attachments" field, click "Send file" button. It opens "Document adding" dialog. I select the file. And I can select "Final Library" for this file. The list have thousand items. I created new item with file attachment name "App.docx". But some old items had the attachments named "App.docx" too. So the attachment in old item was replaced by attachment "App.docx" from created item as new file version. It is not conveniently for users. So I need to add the ability to select the folder in the "Final Library" when the file attachment is adding. I found that it is possible if I create the items in different list views. But I am not able to persuade the user to create new view every time for new item creating. I have no idea and would be grateful for any help.

  • The problem is still actual. I opened Site Settings -> Content Organizer Settings. Then I enabled this option "Append unique characters to the end of duplicate filenames". But it doesn't work. I disabled version control in Site Assets Settings (the Final Library). But it didn’t help. The attachment "App.docx" from old item was replaced by attachment "App.docx" from created item as new file version. Why "Append unique characters to the end of duplicate filenames" doesn’t work? – Anonymous Dec 26 '19 at 12:00
