Change the name of attachments via attachment control

Hello there,

 

I've created an app where our engineers have to fill in a survey. The survey exists of multiple subjects and every subject has a number of questions and multiple pictures.

The attachment control in PowerApps is great for this purpose. They can fill in the survey and upload all the data and pictures to SharePoint in a list with the pictures as attachments.

 

What I need is the pictures to show up in a specific order. At the end a document is created (HTML) with the answers to the questions per subject in a particular order. The pictures they took per subject has to follow that order.

 

I think it must be very easy to do by renaming the pictures / files to a name that starts with the same number as the survey subjects. Then it's easy to filter the pictures in multiple gallery's and show them in HTML via dynamic tables.

 

But I need some help to figure out on how to define the filename of the pictures. 

Thanks in advance for helping me out.
