      Potentially, a drop box might contain several hundred folders, of possibly multiple items, for e.g. all students in a year cohort or applicants for a studentship. All of these may need to be downloaded by an administrator or reviewer for use offline.

      This is covered by the ability to ZIP a Drop Box at the root folder level.

      For this to actually be useful, there needs to be an option that gives the folders in the ZIP export useful names: the same names as the web UI should be used.

      Indeed, there should be two export formats: the current format (EIDs?) (so that round tripping will still work) and a 'nice format' where readable names are used.

      The labels should be

      • Compress to ZIP Archive (Can Be Reuploaded)
      • Compress to ZIP Archive (Readable Folder Names)

      In addition, the on-screen display names should be changed to include the username in parentheses just in case there s more than one "John Smith" in a site, for example, the drop Box should have the following folders

      + .....
      + Smith, Jack (ouit0654)
      + Smith, John (hild0123)
      + Smith, John (kble0654)
      + Smith, Jonathan (wazo0987)
      + ......

      If this massively over-complicates things then lets discuss what to do (such as use email address instead?)
