SnagIt Auto Naming by Program Name (like Greenshot)

Hey, one important aspect in my workflow is taking quick screenshots, and separating them by program is a crucial aspect of being able to quickly reference them in the future. I recently purchased SnagIt for its automation aspect but find that it's lacking the most crucial - yet basic one would think - feature that Greenshot has, namely automatic file naming by the program open when printScreen is captured.

It appears that you already scrape this data as per Mike Curtis in https://feedback.techsmith.com/techsmith/topics/field_suggestion_in_automatic_file_name_functionality - if you were to make it available via an option in auto file naming, that would be an upgrade I would happily pay at least $50 for and I suspect I'm not the only one.

 I also was excited to use this (would've needed a second license for personal usage obviously, but that's no biggie) for personal usage as I game in my free time and enjoy taking screenshots and was looking forward to automating that workflow as well, but without the program naming, once again all screenshots conglomerate into one disorganized mess. Date is fine, but it is only truly valuable in conjunction with program naming. I had a number of friends who were also curious about upgrading from greenshot but had to tell them that the functionality just isn't there.

TL:DR - Love your program, love how customizable and automatable it is (appeals to the dev in me, I suppose), and naming by program would be an upgrade well worth paying for.
