Link Text to File field

Right now its not possible to give a default name to the file link as you can do in normal link field. So if a user upload a file with long names it looks really bad.

I was thinking if knack can give similar functionality to file links like it has in link field.

I agree it would be great to treat the FILE field similar to the LINK field with a way to set the SAME TEXT for all files. For now, I'll review the JS workaround from Stephen... thanks!

Thank You very much
