    Hey Hudson,

    I hope you're having a great day!

    Names for snapshots are created dynamically by the plugin. You may however alter it a bit (or make them easier to tell what is what) by overriding the destination's directory name.

    In your dashboard go to

    "Snapshots" -> "All Snapshots" page and edit selected snapshot (scroll down)

    There's a field named "Directory (optional)" which you may use to for example include a site's name or a custom string. Snapshots will be created inside this directory, so when looking at your destination location from outside the plugin's dashboard you'll be able to tell which directory is assigned to which site.

    I've added a screenshot for your convenience.

    So you saving you can't name the zip folder, but you can control which folder the zip goes into?

    Folder eg - cars site folder, boat site folder ect

    So if my detination url is:

    Then it would be:

    Is this right?
