Overview
Quickly list all the files of a Google Drive folder in a spreadsheet, and automatically display it in an Awesome Table view.
Files Cabinet by Awesome Table is an add-on that helps you list a Google Drive folder. It explores every child folder and lists every file that can be found. After giving you a quick count of all the folders and all the files, you get a list of the files that are ready to be displayed in a catalog created with Awesome Table.

SAVE METADATA

You can also add some meta-data on the sheet (by adding a column at the end of the sheet). Files Cabinet will match entries and keep the data you entered. It can be very useful if: 
- You're working with collaborators on a folder and want to keep track of what file is completed, and what has to be finished
- You're displaying an album of your holidays, and want to know who's on the pictures: simply add a "People" column at the end of the sheet, and fill it with the names of people appearing on the pictures. After updating the list, the column will still match the entries.
- You're displaying your music library, stored in Google Drive, and want to give a rating to every track or to display the cover of the album. Update the list, these information will remain on the sheet and in the Awesome Table view.

DISPLAY YOUR FILES IN A CATALOG WITH AWESOME TABLE

Files Cabinet automatically creates an Awesome Table view that uses a template and a custom css (example here: https://goo.gl/hyqYRi). But if you're into customization, just give a quick look at the Awesome Table documentation (https://goo.gl/uf6v7a) and set your imagination free!

BUILT TO BE ROBUST

Even if you have a huge Google Drive, Files Cabinet will find its way. It can list thousands of files and is only limited to the size of the spreadsheet (two million cells) - which means up to 100 000 files! Just leave the sidebar open and wait for the spreadsheet to be filled. If you have a bigger Drive, and wish to list it, feel free to contact us.

Files Cabinet does not keep neither use any of your data after they were listed.

I take back what I said in my earlier review (included below), even after uninstalling, things are still being messed up, I don't know what's going on, but this add-on went from fantastic, doing what I want to undoing my past work even when it's uninstalled, I don't understand if it's sheets or what's going on, but this app is haunting me, creating hidden sheets left and right and overwriting data in my existing sheets... Old: I've been using it for months, it's always worked great until yesterday when it suddenly started overwriting Google Sheets I didn't even have open, it was making edits every minute, completely erasing edits I had made... I had to uninstall it to get it to stop, but I have no better option than this tool, so I need to install it, use it, and then uninstall it each time I need it now, otherwise it erases my sheets...

Works fine, but for large/many files it is quite slow. But still best option I've come across.

Works ok but lack of a folder path doesn't help much when you have sub folders with the same name (ex. year). It would help to list folders. Seems like this tool is most helpful for large file collections and having the ability to see the folder tree is important. Also it doesn't allow you to choose the root of a shared folder.

Can't seem to get automatic updates since installed? Also, the option to show folder links would be helpful.
