Changing File Names/Moving Files Without Affecting URL

We have noticed in the past that when you rename a file, the URL will update and change. While I have been told by a HubSpot representative that the old URL is still preserved and functions normally, it would be nice to be able to change the name of a file for backend/organizational purposes only.

 

Additionally, when you move a file to a new folder, it also changes the URL, but having one all-encompassing URL that excluded the folder name so when you move folder in the backend it does not affect the URL at all.

 

An example: This test file upload was originally named Test_Name_1. And the URL for this file is /hubfs/Test_name_1.pdf .

However, when you simply "Rename" the file to Test_Name_2, the URL becomes /hubfs/Test_name_2.pdf.

I think it would be beneficial for all HubSpot users that the file name remains the same as when it was downloaded so there are not multiple URLs out there with the same file.
