SFG to support Colon ":" character in File Name

SFG as a product doesn't support certain special characters and one among them is Colon (:). Lets say a customer is connecting to SFG and trying to upload the file with ":" in it , SFG will thrown an error Invalid File Name. However, ":" is supported in certain applications which creates a demand for SFG to support it as well. Lets say we are migrating a customer from another platform "C:E" to SFG this is becoming a big problem.

How will this idea be used?

While migrating customers from other platforms like C:E, this problem occurs a lot which can be avoided id SFG supports ":". Also, for banking transactions file name contains the datetime stamp widely and if it is to be denoted in a format where : is used as separator for time then it is a blocker. By implementing this feature, above and many other blockers can be removed.
