  • Thank you for this explanation. I am aware of the audit feature, but unfortunately, this is not flexible enough for us (or I need to learn more). Like I cannot filter for a given site under a collection (only list), or specific file types, and cannot show facts, like the size of all pdf reports under a given site, also, the output is an excel sheet, and not presentation-ready report. – vilmarci Aug 12 '16 at 10:57
