How the use querystring to for set the file name for a csv transfer

A transfer can be used for creating an export from a DateEase table. To be able to make the file name for the export in runtime, you can do the following:

  1. Create a new transfer and give it a name
  2. Select source: Current app and a table you want to export to csv
  3. Select target: CSV and the following syntax for path: "[[ MEDIA ]]files/[{ gdict.filename|default:"test.csv" }]"
  4. Save it and test it by run, now you should have a csv file with the name test in you static/files folder
  5. Make a new page and add the transfer to the page properties
  6. Open the page in a browser with the syntax: localhost:8000/pagename/?filename=realthing.csv
  7. Now you should have a csv file with the name realthing.csv in the static/files folder
