Google Add-on: Search Drive File Names

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.

This is a Google Workspace Add-on designed to work in Google Sheets via the Side Panel and is freely available for all.
