    Our consultants have a very large archive of current and historical project folders where folder is tagged with information regarding what year the project was initiated, what services we provided, what industry the client is in etc. Adding new project folders and tagging them is self-managed by the project teams, but management wants to be able to pull monthly reports on the metadata to analyze trends regarding our ongoing projects. Sure, we could use a separate system for this and track everything double, but since the folders in BOX are already tagged and we want to avoid double work and inconsitency between the two datasets it would be very much preferrable to just run a simple report in list and get the what metadata templates and tags are applied to each folder. Please note that we don't need to pull report for every file, only folder level tags.

    We have carefully metadata tagged all our customer projects in different categories, now we want quarterly reports on where our data is growing. Just including metadata tags on folder level in file tree report would be enough, then we could compile our own stats from that.
