Document Code Generation by default

We run many classroom exams with hybrid input. Möbius for which it can do and paper for everything Möbius can not do. The paper is collected, scanned and uploaded after annotating and grading. Therefore document codes are necessary. We export the codes using the details export option, which has to be perfomed question-wise. We have programmatic processing to generate the upload files. We have three drawbacks:

-Students forget to generate the code

-The codes are difficult to export from Möbius

-The codes are not available in advance. The workflow is awkward because of this.

We would like to have a document upload question where we can supply the code as a student input during the assignment.

If not this it would help if there would be an export option showing the location of the response field in the assignment.

The currend document upload response field should have an option to generate the code at the start of the Assignment.

    After struggling with document upload for hundreds of documents I suggest to set up a default upload code consisting of the student login or id, the sequence numger of the question within the assignment and the sequence number or part number of the response field in within the question, like "studentxx.qyy.fzz". This would be an unique identifier easy to use.
