Pre-Select document type based on filename

Some document types appear to automatically be pre-selected, for example an IDS. Others are not. It would be helpful if we could encode the document type in the filename. For example, recognize that documents which include the string "FRNREF" are foreign references. I can easily rename a large number of files on my side in a second. Selecting every reference and changing its type for "foreign reference" takes much longer. Ideally, create a file naming convention that encodes all possible document codes. Maybe even for split documents? Something like 1_ResponseNF_2_Claims_4_Remarks for a document that is a response to a non-final rejection, has claims from page 2, followed by remarks starting on page 4.
