  1. Sync Options in the Migration Tool - Incremental Copy

    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.

    Applies to:
    -users
    -documents (move them to a different location if the user has moved it since the last update)
    -content types
    -columns
    -terms

  2. Compare Two Environments

    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:
    -items
    -site settings
    -site features
    -lists and libraries

  3. Add Custom Rules and Filters During Migration or Import

    [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...)

  4. Progress Indicator of Pre-check & Migration

    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
    - etc.

    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.

  5. Incremental Migration of Error Items Only & Retry

    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.

  6. Add a ''Move'' and Delete Option

    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 that

    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

    As mentioned previously, this is not on our roadmap for the time being.

    I just wanted to mention that there is a quick workaround which is to export the folders and documents from Dropbox to a file system and then import them into SharePoint using Sharegate with the Import from File Share option.

    For more info on the import option: https://support-desktop.sharegate.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000640588-Walkthrough-Import-from-File-Share

    Hello everybody!

    It seems to be more complicated than we thought and had to push this back in our priorities for our roadmap.

    We’ll come back to it if this becomes a priority again and if we’re able to determine a solution for it.

  12. Powershell Automatic Script Based on UI Parameters

    It would be awesome if you had a function in the UI that allowed me to set up a migration, and then generate the corresponding PowerShell (save me the time of figuring how to encode all of my options).

  13. Convert Web Parts and Pages from Classic to Modern

    During a migration, have the ability to convert Site Pages and their classic Web Parts to their Modern version (when it exists).

    - If a Classic Web Part does not exist as Modern, it should not be converted.
    - Custom Web Parts should be ignored.

  15. Migrate Microsoft Teams Chatrooms/Channels

    We need to do a tenant to tenant migration of Office 365. Your tool looks like it could aid with that, but by 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?
