Title (Goal)Check Bitstream names against allowed file name pattern
Primary ActorEnd User | Administrator
Story (A paragraph or two describing what happens)

This is a similar  to Structure - Format checking of data entry in input forms.

I frequently get a the request to change the name of a bitstream, eg remove space, fix spelling, ...

Users who want to change a bitstream's name during the upload step, must rename the file on their local computer and upload a second time.

One reason for this is that the bitstream name is automatically assigned on the basis of the uploaded file's name.  At a minimum users should get the option to change the suggested bitstream name. In addition - with a regexp  configuration option - users could be reminded of the institutions naming standard.

  1. Loosely related to Admin UI - Manage input forms.  Although this isn't a feature that is currently available in Input Forms, moving management of Input Forms to the Admin UI may make this easier to achieve.
