Add a prefix when creating an attachment that is reflective of the user who created the attachment. Specifically I would like to add a prefix to the attachment name that reflects the user who took the photo in the field. Right now for some features there are two Photo 1.jpgs for the same feature. Is there a way to add a prefix so that you have 01_Photo 1.jpg and 02_Photo1.jpg. 01 and 02 being the user in the field.

It would be ideal if the photo was auto named with something meaningful to the associated tabled or feature class it is working with or if the user is able to somehow set what that is (facility ID, Object ID, Activity ID, Inpection ID, etc).  Also, while the user is attaching files or before saving the attachment to the table, it would be useful to allow the user to apply a meaning to the attachment itself (in one of our uses "Structure", "Pond", "Easement") in cases where there may be many attachments to the object or fc.
