Hi, the changes to the way files are presented before submission look really great. Big 👍. I'm wondering though whether the files once they have been submitted could be presented in a better way. Ideally the students would be able to see the filename. This would help with anxieties around submission to ensure they have uploaded the correct version of their document. I've attached a screenshot of the area I'm referring to.

Categorising Studio submissions as a type of file upload is unintuitive, even more so having to click "More options" after selecting "File Upload". How would anyone guess that's how you access Studio? It should be categorised as a "Media" submission type instead. This is a barrier to adoption for our institution.
