File chooser - skip overwrite dialog?

I have many protocols that make use of the File Chooser component, and users frequently upload files that are already present in their home directories.  When this happens, a message "Overwrite or Rename File" appears and the user has to click "overwrite".  While I understand why this is happening, it is quite annoying to have to click on this dialog many times a day.  Is there any way to configure my file chooser so that I can bypass this dialog?

I noticed the same thing. Let me check with our developers what we can do about that. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
Have you tried removing the input files at the end of the protocol run?  This way, they won't exist the next time the user runs the protocol and they shouldn't get the message.
