Device: Computer Browser

Set the default naming convention for the media you download from Riverside so the files can be more easily integrated into your post-production workflow.

Step by step

  1. Log in to your Riverside account.
  2. Click the desired Production.
  3. On the left, click settings.svg Production Settings.
  4. Scroll to Custom file names.
  5. Click Edit.
  6. Click and drag the naming elements to rearrange them.
  7. Click + Add to choose additional naming elements.
  8. To the left of the sample file name, click the - button to choose a separator: hyphens, spaces, or underscores.
  9. Click Save.

The custom name applies to individual High Quality Tracks, shared media tracks, internet backups, clips composed in the Editor, and transcription files.

Available naming elements include:

  • Date & time (in UTC)
  • Sequence number (a unique number assigned to each track in a Studio)
    • Available only for recordings created after June 2023
  • Custom free text (up to 25 letters or numbers)
  • Production name
  • Studio name
  • Recording name
  • Guest names (adds the names of all participants)
  • Participant name (for an individual track or the name of a clip)
  • Export type (such as CFR MP4, WAV, compressed MP3, MP4, backup video, etc.)
  • Media type (such as participant, editor-clip, composed, screenshare, media-board, slide-presentation)
  • Recording ID
  • Riverside (a static label)

If you do not create a custom filename, the default naming in a Business account is Recording name + Date and time + Sequence number. By default, each recording is given a name that contains the names of all the participants.
