A recently filed patent (Publication Number: US20230305998A1) describes a computing platform that enables the automatic generation and application of proposed names for data files. The platform includes a network interface, at least one processor, and a non-transitory computer-readable medium. The program instructions stored on the medium are executable by the processor to perform various functions.

The computing platform is designed to receive a data file from a first client station and obtain metadata associated with the file. Based on a first set of metadata, the platform determines a naming structure to use for the file. Using this structure and a second set of metadata, the platform generates a proposed name for the file. The platform then transmits a communication to a second client station, identifying the proposed name and causing it to be presented at the user interface of the second client station.

In addition to generating the proposed name, the computing platform can also apply the proposed name to the data file. After applying the proposed name, the platform can place the file in a common data environment (CDE), facilitating easy access and organization.

The platform allows for user interaction with the proposed name. If the second client station suggests modifications to the proposed name, the platform can generate a user-modified version of the name based on these suggestions. The modified name can then be applied to the data file.

The naming structure used by the platform comprises multiple data fields. For each field, a proposed-name segment is generated by populating the field with a metadata value associated with the file. The indication of the proposed name presented at the user interface includes these proposed name segments.

The obtained metadata can come from various sources, including metadata generated by the computing platform itself or metadata received from client stations.

Overall, this patent describes a computing platform that automates the process of generating and applying proposed names for data files, improving organization and accessibility in a common data environment. The platform also allows for user modifications to the proposed names, providing flexibility and customization options.
