Reporting file storage

A quick tip for people uploading files to agileBase – if you hover over a filename or icon, the file size will be displayed. The size shown is a total that includes all previous versions, if you’ve uploaded multiple versions over time.

There’s also a new ‘hidden’ field available that can be added to views, ‘storage used (MB)’ which shows the total size of all files uploaded to a particular record. Using that, the total storage used for all files can be displayed. Plus any of the standard agileBase features such as filtering and charting can be used to break down or analyse usage.

Thanks to Britannia Windows and Foodcase International who both (independently) suggested this feature.
