Web Part Report
It would be very useful to undergo a report for Webparts within a site collection.
Checking which webparts are open and in use within a site collection if important for migrating accross platforms. This type of report would be VERY useful for SharePoint teams as it would highlight sites which need attention from the developers (if a webpart is custom for example) to ensure they dont break.
Please can this be added?

Just ran in to a need for this. It would definitely help us road map new features based on what is/isn't being used
Now with the number of 3rd party products, and the number of site collections in the organization, the need to have a report of webparts its very important to clear out or disable undesirable webparts from sites or at least report their locations where they have been used so we can take prompt action, before users complains
Is there a report hat shows
Web part targeting report?

One of the most useful features for us (using a nother product) is to be able to report on which web parts are in use, either hidden or visible on site pages across all our site collections. Its very useful to have a tool that shows all the deployed web parts and then be able to report on the usage of one or more as this helps us plan for migrations where we want to know where a particular custom web part that needs to be replaced/upgraded is in use.
List of Features and web parts with an indication of whether they are active and in use on pages, respectively.
It would be good to have this information exportable to Excel or PDF.
