Description: Feature request

I guess it should be good that email notifications of "your GBIF data download is ready" would contain a little bit more information (specially if the user has made several download requests).

Currently they just contain a link to the zip file, so the user does not actually know which data are being downloaded. When user clicks link it makes sense to rename the downloaded zip file with a description of the data.

So it would be useful if the notification email contains the same "filter" and "date created" info about the zip file (which is available in the user downloads page next to each zip download).

Comment: Completely agreed this is needed. Otherwise, the user has to look at the metadata.xml file which isn't very user friendly to read, or lookup the download on their download history page in the portal using the download id.
