New File import interface

Many of our content contributors are confused by the options available when they try to import files into Cascade.
Most confusing is that "system name" marked as a required field. They forget to leave it blank and end up creating invalid assets.
is it possible to remove fields, "System Name" and "Edit File content", and only have a "parent folder" and "browse" options on the "Create New File" tab? -- screen shot is attached.

    Hi Svetlana,

    I agree that this could be confusing to end users. I found this idea on our Idea Exchange that is related to this behavior. Please be sure to vote it up and/or comment if you wish.

    Let me know if you need anything else.

    Thanks Tim. I wasn't able to access the forum however. I could login, but I didn't see the thread.

    It is a serious glitch in CMS design - the system allows creating invalid files; indicates that the field required and allows to skip it -- is it really for discussion?

    Hi Svetlana,

    No worries. I just sent you an invite so that you can view the Idea Exchange.

    I certainly agree with you that the interface can be very confusing for users. Please be sure to comment on that item so that our developers can see your feedback.
