Document Name Length Limit of 20 Characters

Hi, When uploading a document it is good to give it a meaningful name but the name attribute is limited to 20 characters. We have a lot of minutes, reports, etc. and a longer name would be a great help rather than having to use abbreviations. Can this limit be increased?

Increasing the document name limit along with being able to make custom fields mandatory would be perfect!

One further question. I can upload documents using Club Setup -> Documents which are simply listed. However when I want to attach to a private page these documents are not presented. And in reverse documents that i upload to a private page do not appear here but do when editing other private pages. Are these 2 separate repositories?

This is a bit of a cheeky enhancement request but a folder structure would be good.

Yes they are separate, basically due to the nature of a private page being only accessible by logged in members

In light of the recent FA Coaching regarding safeguuarding children issues we are ensuring that Coaches Member records are uplaoded with all the approrpriate certificates so we are starting to use the Doc functionality.   We have found that the Document Name Limit is restricting and also the case of the displayed name converts everything in the Document Name to Lower case with the exception of the very first character.  This makes the document list look amateurish and often doesn't help members locate the document they need..  It would be very Helpful to enable mixed case to enable separation of words, especially as I don't want to use spaces or underscores due to the 20 character lmit.   Now we are using document functionality  I see this as a basic fundamental requirement, so yes please can this be added ASAP.  

To Clarify
1. Increase Document Name Limit
2. Enable Mixed Case Document Name

Thank you Sarah, I have noticed one more issue with documents. Whenever you edit a member document name it defaults club document back in converts it back to a club document on save, unless you change it back. Can this be fixed? Thank you . Rob
