Data for Admin



  • Cedric Lemaire

    Hello Pierre-Antoine,

    Thank you for reaching out. We understand you're interested in accessing detailed asset size and distribution data within the Showpad platform.

    Showpad functions more as a content management and engagement platform than a straightforward storage solution, like what you might find with Windows Explorer or Mac's Finder, where you can right-click and request the size of storage it takes.
    This design choice influences how content data, including storage sizes, is presented and accessible to our users.

    Here’s what is currently available to help you manage and understand content sizes better:

    • My Dashboard visually represents the distribution of asset types (documents, photos, videos, etc.) within your content. This feature gives a high-level overview of what types of content are predominantly used in your account.
    • Content Library allows for the inspection of individual asset sizes. Furthermore, as you mentioned, you can export this data to an Excel file for a more comprehensive analysis. This can be particularly useful for in-depth content audits or for preparing reports.

    That said, we're interested in understanding the context and specific needs behind your request. It can help us identify potential solutions or workarounds that meet your requirements.

    Could you share more about your use case and what you aim to achieve with this data? With a clearer understanding of your objectives, we may offer more targeted advice or consider your needs in future updates.

    Thank you for your proactive approach to improving your work with Showpad. We look forward to hearing from you and exploring ways to support your goals.

    Hi Cedric,
    Thanks for you so fast answer.
    You're right, Showpad isn't a storage system in its own way.
    It is, however, interesting to be able to find information quickly for an admin whose colleague needs to know how much space he's missing when he wants to load the entire content on his phone or computer.
    What's more, the ability to load content locally sometimes lacks simplicity.
    It forces the user to load content file by file, rather than, for example, having the option of loading experiments or experiment content.
    It's interesting to compare the overall file size (based on the library's xls export). The data provided by the xls shows me 14.27 Gb of data. The complete, updated application shows me 12.9 Gb, which makes a significant difference.

    Hello Pierre-Antoine,

    Thank you for elaborating on your use case. I have passed your feedback along to our Product team.

    I've also shared your improvement idea to add more options for downloading content to user devices. 

    The difference in total file size compared to the amount of space used on a device when all content is downloaded is interesting. A slight nuance exists when comparing the library export and what the user reports from their device.  

    The library export will show all files, including those that have not been added to an Experience or may not be accessible to the user.  The amount of used space users see on their devices is based on the content they access.  With that in mind, the numbers from the library export are expected to be more than what the user sees on their local device.  

    There is a 'used in experiences' column in the xls export file. If you filter by the Experiences the user can access, this should be closer to the total space needed on their device. 

    Thank you again for sharing your feedback. It helps us improve our product.

    Kind regards,
