With GAT+ you can create a scheduled report that allows you to identify and replace all files with ‘Public’ to ‘Public with link’ permissions in Google Drive, read below to see how!
Apply the desired filter and schedule report #
Go to GAT+ > Drive > Apply custom filter > Sharing flag contains Anyone in domain
Next, select Scheduled > choose Occurance time > check Enabled > select Recipients
Once ready, Apply & Schedule
Replace “Public” with “Public with link” #
To generate a job go to GAT+ > Configuration > Scheduled reports
Next, find the earlier generated report and select Job Action Edit button that can be found on the right side of the scheduled report.
The Scheduled job details window will appear.
Select Replace > Replace “Public at domain.com” with “Public at domain.com with link”
Under Configuration > select Status Enabled
Once all is ready, Save settings
The scheduled report will be triggered as often as requested during the process, and the scheduled job will be executed as selected:
