Hi, welcome. We don't currently offer any renaming functions for existing content, if that's what you mean. But there are plenty of bulk renaming utilities out there that might help you.

Yes, this is what I'm looking for.

You suggest something?

 

Also, when I do the rename, my users will lost the watched status for each episode/movie (the green icon top right)?

 

 

Thanks

I use filebot, watched status is linked to the items tmdb tvdb IDs so after renaming files you should then run a scan and everything should be fine (you could test with using just a couple of files first just to make sure though if you want)
