Advanced Rename Tools for Artboards
Would love to have a feature that allows a mass-rename feature to artboards the same way you can rename files in Mac OS: Add Text, Replace Text, Format. As a designer who exports many artboards for the web and is constantly renaming file version numbers for easy export - this would be a dream!
+1 to this please, it should be easy to implement and super standarized tool in 2021

Great idea, even if the developers end up not implementing a full-fledged function as described in https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657-illustrator-desktop-feature-requests/suggestions/31629217-for-complex-artboard-setups-artboard-groups-fold , at least having the ability to import a csv file with all the artboard numbers and names (maybe sizes and etc?) would be great. That way, you would be able to process the csv file in Excel or other word processing app, then import the result, greatly facilitating the management of artboards. Currently I work with many languages, brands and platforms, my Illustrator files for generating branding imagery for social media have an average of 30 artboards, some go up to 90 or more. Renaming all those artboards by hand is a big pain in the back. Dear devs, please, please come up with something to address this?
PS: Yes, scripting can get us halfway there, but scripting is a too complicated skill to learn just to rename artboards....

For sure, as Illustrator now can handle lots of artboards in it, it's good to have some managing assets and tools to make it more comfort to work with them and managing them.
This is an important Need of every asset designer, font designer and lot of us out here.
hope it will soon.

I use external scipt (linked), Please embed similar tool :)
And add more functions:
- offset numbering (start number)
- Scale factor in the artboard name (1:1, 1:10, 1:25 etc.)
This script use 1:10 size
and other useful batch renaming function...
