File upload - Skip existing

Enhancement request for the IBM Connections Desktop Plug-in and Outlook Plug-in:
In certain customer situations we recognized that users are uploading a whole folder to IBM Connections Files. If a file is already uploaded the user gets a notifications, that the file already exists. It would be very useful to expand the existing dialog with an option like "skip existing files"
A user uploads multiple files from his local file system to IBM Connections. For each file, which is already uploaded, the user get the notification (translated from German to English): "A file with this name already exists in this folder. Please select an option:"

In this particular case the user uploaded a folder with 500 files. 340 files already exists and only 40 of them has been edited. Therefore the user has to push "Skip file" 300 times
