Export search results data (as CSV or Excel) and/or files
There may be times when you just want to see a list of the hits without looking at the actual files, or download the files themselves without the details
This is sorely needed.
We have some folders with a ton of files in them.
When running a search you currently have to keep scrolling to get to the next set of results (very time consuming).
There needs to be a way to export the results or get a report even if it takes a bit of time to process.
This would allow us to search for either certain file types, files that have a certain name, etc and then be able to export to either filter down results or analyze how we see fit based on the number of hits our search returns. This would be hugely beneficial to our organization.

Use case: Be able to answer questions that reporting may not cover - e.g. "How many .PST files do we have stored out in Box and who do they belong to?”
Search can help, but it returns so many hits it's tough to take action/see totals. Exporting them would allow us to further apply filters/analyze the search in Excel.

This is desperately needed, what in the world, how is this not a feature?
