    Upload file to overwrite existing one, without renaming

    Annie Kennedy Level 1

      We have files on our server that we need to have dedicated and stable names for, as we edit them periodically and we want them always to have the same name. When we upload them through Contribute, the software automatically adds a suffix to them, making them not the same file name of one that we need to replace. I can understand why this might do it for security reasons, if someone is editing the file and then overwrites someone's work, say. But we want to deactivate this.

       

      For example, if I have a file named form.pdf, when I made edits to it, I need it to overwrite the previous version of form.pdf. Instead, Contribute is calling this form form001.pdf, which makes it NOT overwrite it.

       

      Is this somewhere in the permissions? Please help.

       

      Thanks
