While creating a dataset using file upload connector for xlsx file, can we update the configuration of it to include the filename as well? I understand that there is an option with the Legacy file upload connector but only that is only with CSV and not with excel.


  • I find it to be best practice to include the file name, location, and date the file was last edited in the description of the data set when using the file upload feature

    Can we do this using the normal File upload connector as well instead of the Legacy File upload connector?

    This would still be helpful. Including the file name as a field in the dataset using the file upload connector. Especially one set to append.

    @jroach The Dataset via Email connector includes a column for the input filename, so it may be worth trying that
