I am requested to generate a report that illustrates the number of pages and plus the count of words on each page, and the number of files in that site (word, PDF, images..etc.).

Is there any custom tool that i can use to enter my SharePoint site URL and then it will generate me the report i'm looking for Or if you think SharePoint Powershell can help with this, please share your ideas with me.

You can start with the below script and do customization to fit into your requirement:





   Script to inventory all sites within a SharePoint Online (O365) site collection.

   If running this script on a machine that does not have SharePoint bits installed, you will need to install the latest SharePoint Server 2013 Client Components SDK on the machine.   

   It can be downloaded from here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35585     


   The URL of your SharePoint Online site collection


   SharePoint Online User with FULL CONTROL permissions


   User password


   The absolute folder path and file name where the site collection inventory file (*.csv) should be saved


   .\Get-SPOInventory.ps1 -SiteUrl https://rightpoint.sharepoint.com -UserName [email protected] -Password pass@word  -OutputFile C:\Rightpoint\SiteInventory.csv   














function Get-SPOSites{




        #Create array variable to store data

        $siteitems = $null

        $siteitems = @()

        #get all webs under root web

        $Webs = $RootWeb.Webs



        #loop through the webs

        ForEach ($sWeb in $Webs)


            Write-Host $sWeb.url

            $siteUrl = $sWeb.Url;

            #get all lists in web

            $AllLists = $sWeb.Lists



            #loop through all lists in web

            ForEach ($list in $AllLists){

For the last requirement, here’s a PowerShell script to get all documents Inventory in a SharePoint site.

Please see the refence below:
