Hi there,

As an Admin, I'd like to be able to view a list of folders and files are shared with a Group (both Team and Shared folders). This information would be very helpful to me to minimize disruption  as we transition from folders shared with a mix of individuals groups to team folders. I can get this information for individual users by useing "sign on as user" but I have not found any way of collecting this information for Groups.

Hey @JGJ, I’ll do my best to further advise you on this! 
 
You should be able to view the team sharing activity with the Dropbox activity log you can locate through your admin console. If you run a search for the keyword “Group” there, you’ll see a table generated at the bottom which you can customize/adjust according to your needs. 
 
Hopefully my message points you towards the right direction

This is definetely a help but the questions I'm looking to answer are still a bit tedious to piece together from activity logs. Mostly because my company managed to develop a complicated mix of Shared folders before Team folders roled out as a feature. When you are adding a user to a Group, it's still a bit unclear to what that translates to in terms of files and folders.

What would address this most directly, (feature request) is a "group" view just like one can see for users. Alternatively, it might be helpful to be able to use "shared with" as a search filter.

Yeah, it sounds like Share an Idea is the right section for now. Thanks Jane!
