Searching for files of a user/editor/reader etc

In GAT’s Google Drive audit, we provide an array of search parameters to filter by. Making it the most useful feature on in this section. You can quickly find files and take action on them or to export this data for archiving purposes.

Click on the funnel icon also known as ‘Custom apply filter’ button.

In the menu which appears the default type is set to Simple Filter.

Select Owner parameter equal to UserX’s email address. If you wish not to enter the entire email address then change equal to contains (case insensitive).

Other Search parameters are as follows:

  • Organizer – This is related to Team Drive roles, Organizers roles allow users to permanently remove content and modify Team Drive name and membership.
  • User – This search parameter returns files which can be edited, read or are owned by UserX
  • Editors – This search parameter will return files which can be edited by UserX
  • Readers – This search parameter will return files which can be viewed or read by UserX
