If you need to have a different file name for your HREFlang XML Site Map Index file you can do it by entering any name you want in the field.  This is often needed when you are using HREFLang Builder for multiple projects on the same domain or you want to ensure Dev Teams know what file does for the site.  When we generate/update the XML Index file we  will name it accordingly. 

Required Setting:  No.  It is not necessary to change this as shown in the field below. 

Default Setting: “href-sitemap-index.xml”  or empty – we assign the default name  to any index file unless you add a custom name. 

Note:  If you need/want to name your individual country XML site map files you can do so using the “Global File Name Prefix.” If you do not set this it will take the default name.
