Hi guys!


I have a field on my offers table called `signed_offer` this is a container field with external open storage.

When I insert a pdf in this field (drag and drop mostly) I would like it to create a filename based on my offer id field and client name (and maybe more but that's not the issue). This is very convenient since it does not require me to name the pdf correctly before inserting it in filemaker.


I know I don't really need the naming, but it's very handy if they have consistent naming if I ever want to manually navigate in the external storage folder or use that document for whatever reason.


I probably need to create a script that acts when the container is modified.


Thanks guys!
