1. Google Drive Usage Trend Graph
The Google Drive Trend Report is a visual summary of the Google Drive usage pattern by domain users. By default, the line graph displays the total number of files owned in the domain’s Google Drive by summing up all domain users’ accounts.
2. Files Link Shared Status
The bar graph displays the Google Drive domain files broken down in the sharing status of the files. The graphs total the number of files Shared in two main categories:
① Files Shared Externally (outside of the domain)
② Files Shared Internally (within the domain)
Externally Shared Files
Externally Shared Files totals the number of files that are shared to users outside of the domain. Details can be seen as to how the files are being externally shared. The bar graph visually shows how many files are being shared by being visible to anyone with the link to the file, and number of files that are publicly shared.
Internally Shared Files
Internally Shared files totals the number of files being shared to users inside of the domain. The trends show how many files are being shared privately, to the domain with a file link, and how many files are shared internally with the share to domain file setting.
