It is easy to search for the names of files within Google Drive™, but what happens when there are a lot of results that you need to go through?! Scrolling continuously down the page becomes quite clunky and frustrating, so with this tool you can perform that same search in a Google Sheet™ but have the results collated into the Sheet also, so they are much easier to then work with.

Information collated into the Google Sheet™ includes:
> The filename,
> The file ID,
> The folder path,
> A direct/clickable link to the file,
> The type of file eg PDF, Googe Sheet/Doc, etc,
> The file creation date, 
> The file last updated date.

1) After installing, select the tool from the "Add-ons" menu within any Google Sheet™.
2) Follow the on-screen instructions to enter all (or part) of the file name you are searching for.
3) After that it will automatically create a new Google Sheet™ tab and begin the process of scanning. 
4) Once complete the results will be appended to the Sheet for you.

Depending on how many file there are it may take some time and if it does not complete within the Google-allotted time (5mins and 30secs) you will be prompted to resume progress so nothing is lost.
