Import revision to filename

I'm currently trying to set up af WPDM as a test for better workflow.


Since the manufacturer is requiring that no files name are identical, this includes revision. This means I have to change the filename every single time I make the slighest change to a file. For that reason i would very much like SolidWorks to import the revision as part of the file name.


The flow should look like the


- Check out file

- - Name: PART1_A01

- - Revision: A01


- Make changes


- save and check out file -> Increase revion + rename

- - Name: PART1_A02

- - Revision: A02


Otherwise, if that is not an option, I would like SolidWorks to add the revision if I export files, so i can e-mail the files to manufacturer.


Name + Revision + "Save as" = PART1_A02
