Quickly compare source and destination content in order to see what needs to be incrementally migrated and to prove to customers that every item from the source made it to destination.
To be compared:
-lists and libraries201 votes
This is not currently in our plan to allow our users to compare two environments.
We might do it in the future, possibly starting with permission as it seems like it would be the most useful part on security level.
For example, if a file has been deleted in the source after it had gotten copied over to SharePoint, can it be deleted in SharePoint?
The goal is to re-sync only the updates, additions and deletions without the need to copy the whole thing again. It allows to keep on using the source environment while keeping the destination one sync until we're ready to go live with the new site.
-documents (move them to a different location if the user has moved it since the last update)
As much as we hear your need, this is not currently on our road map. We will revisit it eventually.
A feature through which we can correct the links...
-located inside pages
-located inside documents
-located in any type of migrated item
-links pointing to unpublished documents.150 votes
It’s been a while since this suggestion has been updated so I just want to let you know that after re-evaluation, we still not planning on adding such a feature in the near future.
We will continue to read your comments so don’t hesitate to send in more.
Thanks again for sharing your feedback.
-show number of views to a site, or a document.
-show number of visits and of unique visitors.
-show trending content.
-show number of other audited events.
-show most active users.
-Run it on the entire farm and show stats by sites.
The goal is to monitor internally the user's experience with SharePoint.145 votesTell us more · AdminJean-Philippe Beaulieu (Voice of the User / User researcher, ShareGate) responded
With the different options already offered by Microsoft (Popularity and Usage reporting, Site health, etc.), we are wondering if the need of usage reporting in ShareGate is still relevant?
-Are there any scenarios where the options offered by Microsoft don’t help?
-How would the info gathered through this type of reporting would help?
Let us know how you think this would help so we can build the solution to fit your needs.
Be able to run and schedule reports using PowerShell.141 votesTell us more · AdminJean-Philippe Beaulieu (Voice of the User / User researcher, ShareGate) responded
Since the ability to schedule reports has been included for a while now and with the upcoming feature to automatically export reports into a SP library (see: https://feedback.sharegate.com/forums/912880/suggestions/17768698), I was wondering if this suggestion will still be needed?
What are your thoughts on this?
Review the way Sharegate uses the auto-assign feature
- Handle differently per type of site (OneDrive, Groups, Team sites)
- Setting per tenant / farm / connection
- Option to auto-remove after each operations
- Handle special cases (eDiscovery sites, NO ACCESS or Read-only)
Since the default is now disabled. It should prevent most situation some of you are describing.
We still feel like the Auto-Assign as site collection administrator is a useful option in certain case.
If you encounter an issue you can always refer to this documentation to fix it. https://support-desktop.sharegate.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000647528-Can-I-remove-myself-as-an-administrator-after-I-have-auto-assigned-myself-as-one-
[Admin note: Merged all suggestion related to more complex filtering during Migration or Import]
- Filter on full file names instead of just exensions.
- Filter with wildcards
- Include / Exclude folder by name using the custom templates
- Exclude specific (sub) folders based on names
- Timestamp/range filters - last modified date and created date
- List or site template filters
- Filter by property (name, type, etc.)
- Filter by size
- Filter empty objects (sites, libraries, folders, ...)
- Exclude specific type of objects (Microfeed...)
We feel like our migration experience is quite good right now and we don’t plan on doing custom rules and filters for now.
Some of those can already be done using PowerShell, SharePoint views and other means.
We will eventually reevaluate this once we advance further in our roadmap.
Report on the metadata columns used inside lists and libraries.114 votesNot For Now · AdminJean-Philippe Beaulieu (Voice of the User / User researcher, ShareGate) responded
Since we want to be transparent regarding our roadmap, I just wanted to do a quick update to say that even though we are not declining this idea, we are not planning on adding metadata reporting in the near future. We’ll keep you informed if and when we start working on it.
Support migration of Microsoft Teams
We need to do a tenant to tenant migration of Office 365. Your tool looks like it could aid with that, but my question is about Microsoft Teams migration. Aside from the Teams content that is in SharePoint, I have not found any supported method to other content from teams such as chats and channel conversation. Is Sharegate working on this?103 votes
We have officially started working on this and are aiming at releasing this before the summer.
We will still be looking at feedback given here to ensure that the experience will suits your needs.
Display more details while operation is running and as summary on completion:
- Elapsed time
- Breakdown by sites, lists/librairies, files, items instead of just "items" and "objects" count
- Possibility to drill down progress breakdown by site, by list
- Size of processed data (+ total if possible)
- Inbound / Outbound network speeds
- Remaining time (if possible)
- Time / size of Azure upload jobs
For Migrations in PowerShell, add -vebose like cmdlet to allow users to see the progress of the migration instead of waiting for the migration to finish/script execution to end.103 votes
We don’t plan on adding progress indicator as we feel it would only become misleading because estimation are really hard to make due to technical limitations.
The idea is to use the migration report to start a new migration of the files that error out only, instead of running a full incremental migration.97 votes
As much as we really like this idea, it doesn’t fit in the current narrative of ShareGate Desktop.
We will for sure reevaluate this one in a near future.
Having to remember to keep the selection, verify the copy & then delete stuff when you're moving thousands of files around is really hard & painful when you make a mistake. It would be great if you guys had a move option that took care of all of that87 votesThinking About it · AdminJean-Philippe Beaulieu (Voice of the User / User researcher, ShareGate) responded
I am glad to say that we are currently exploring the possibility to add an option to automatically make Read-only and/or Delete the source of migration if it goes errorless.
We’ll keep you updated with any news on this.
Archival of O365 content
- Store in Azure
- Store locally (download)
- Restore to O365 or locally
Browse / Search archive
- Scheduled / Incremental options78 votes
Recently, we launched ShareGate Apricot, a tool that offers to delegate the decision of archiving stale groups to users.
That being said, an office 365 backup feature is not something we are planning to add to ShareGate Desktop. We’ll still keep the suggestion opened to new votes and comments and keep our eyes on it. But for now, it is not part of our priorities.
We’ll update the suggestion if our plans change.
-Run reports on the recycle bin content
-Be able to restore the content
-Be able to delete the content77 votes
We have no plan of supporting the recycle bin in ShareGate Desktop.
- Find all workflows that are running or in-progress
- See the name of the workflows
- Run report on workflows, out of the box, SP designer, Nintext, 3rd party
- Be able to create a report that will list the status of the workflows
- Report on workflows published by a specific user
- Report on how many workflow tasks are assigned to a particular user
We’ve release a version of Workflow reporting a few months ago and are trying to figure out where we are going with this.
Please tell us what you would like us to add to this feature.
- run reports on managed metadata
- Term/Termset usage report
- create a report which can tell us which documents do not have metadata attached to it
By adding InfoPath to the filters, one could find all the lists that uses them and it could be helpful in some migration scenarios.62 votes
We have no plan or adding InfoPath filters in reporting. We know it would make your migration to the cloud a little bit smoother, but it doesn’t fit in ShareGate Desktop’s current narrative.
Preserve List Items ID's59 votesNot For Now · AdminJean-Philippe Beaulieu (Voice of the User / User researcher, ShareGate) responded
Lately we decided to shift most of our energy towards migrating, managing and adopting Office 365. When we create new features, we make sure they also work with SharePoint on-premise (if possible), but we are not planning on developing more options of features specifically for on-premise at the moment.
I’ll keep the suggestion open and our ears are still open to new comments.
It would be nice to be able to pause the migration and then later restart it58 votes
Thanks for taking the time to post this idea. We looked at it with the team and for now have decided that it’s not something we will be working on short term.
We’ll keep looking at the requests and update if we anything changes
Add the possibility to add permissions at the item level with the reporting tool.
We are currently reconsidering this suggestion and are wondering if it is still a need for you, especially if you are an Office 365 user.
Let us know and we will reevaluate this eventually.
