The option to export a custom report with a custom filename through code would be useful.

Currently, when exporting a report, the filename is assumed from the report name. It is time-consuming to manually rename each exported file. If it were possible to build the filename through code, it would save time when exporting a large set of reports to send to customers or vendors.

Example of currently exporting three custom sales invoices:
Sales Invoice.pdf
Sales Invoice(1).pdf
Sales Invoice(2).pdf

These would be more helpful:
S-INV 101010 - Customer A.pdf
S-INV 101011 - Customer B.pdf
S-INV 101012 - Customer C.pdf

Definitely needed. It's a very basic feature and the lack of this creates additional work when sending out reports to customers or vendors.

It's ridiculous that we are unable to do such a basic feature. The event is not firing and I'm unable to complete a task for our customer and won't be able to do it until you fix it! This is not a feature, this is bug. Fixing it is not like you'd have to invent a new ERP system...

Unfortunately, the 'OnGenerateFileNameOnAfterAssignFileName' event is not triggering for custom reports. The ability to modify PDF names is still unavailable, and this feature remains necessary. Kindly address this concern.

check event OnGenerateFileNameOnAfterAssignFileName on Codeunit::"Custom Layout Reporting"seems does exactly that.ps: not tested

Still major must have feature. Every filename has to be changed manually - that' very time consuming and interrupts the workflow.

Would save a lot of time if the printed report (to PDF or Word) would have filename with document ID instead of the template name.

for example a Sales invoice (V-ORD20-12345_YYYYDDMM_HHMM)
