An Add-on to perform a Google Drive file name search from within a Google Sheet to keep the file information saved for future use.
It is easy to search for the names of files within Google Drive, but what happens when there are a lot of results that you need to go through?! Scrolling continuously down the page becomes quite clunky and frustrating, so with this tool you can perform that same search in a Google Sheet but have the results collated into the Sheet also, so they are much easier to then work with.
This Google Sheet will contain:
- a clickable link to the file,
- the file type,
- the date it was created,
- when it was last updated,
- the folder path where it is stored,
- the ID of the file.
I use Google Apps Script to support staff and students in my job. I enjoy dabbling with creating tools to help with automation and I freely share my learning experiences on my blog, where I also have a number of useful Google Add-ons: www.pbainbridge.co.uk
