Describing a user interface that allows a user to edit the names of files
before loading the files for analysis. The interface has four options for
doing this. Three of these options result in the application/program itself
deciding what to edit the filenames to. The fourth option basically says
point to a text file that the user has loaded and check in Col 1 to see what
the file name currently is and then check in col 2 to see what filename that
the user has specified for the file and change the name to this.

So, when describing the interface, I state that you can use this tool to
programmatically change/edit your filenames or you can ??

I am looking for an antonym/opposite meaning of programmatically - something
that says you basically are telling the software what it has to change the
filenames to - the software doesn't get to decide. Would manually changing
the filename be an accurate statement or? I have tried finding an antonym
for programmatically, but so far, nothing really sits just right.
