      1. Add Drop Box tool to a site with a few students in it. A unique folder will be created for each student.
      2. Click the root level folder Actions dropdown and select "Compress to Zip Archive".
      3. Zip Archive folder is created as last folder in the DropBox list.
      4. Click into folder to download.
      5. Open folder on computer.

      Expected result: Folders bear student names or studentIDs, such as bjones2 and jsmith12.

      Actual result: folders bear student internal ID numbers which are not readable or identifiable to the average Sakai instructor. I don't even know where an instructor could cross-reference these internal system numbers with student names...?

      Description

      For an instructor who has students turn in work via the Drop Box in Sakai, being able to zip and download that content is helpful.

      However, the folder that is downloaded does not have recognizable student names for the individual student folders.

      While maintaining unique titles for these folders (i.e. - there could be two John Smiths in the class), we need to give these student folders more useful names for the instructor to work with.

      Instead of the internal ID, could we use the User ID?
