Explanation of the all shared folders report's CSV file columns and rows

The name of the generated report file indicates the type of the report, as well as the timestamp when it was generated. In the CSV output file for this report, each row provides information on each sharing instance. If the same folder is shared to more than one recipient at any point in time, corresponding rows will provide information related to each recipient. 

The top two rows indicate the type of the report and the filters used - whether this is a report for folders shared to any email or external emails only. See the below table for information on the details provided in the report.
