    Hi,

    We are currently evaluating the possibility of adding the migration of planners to ShareGate Desktop outside of Teams migration, thus allowing you to migrate a specific planner from a tenant to another.

    But first we would like to know more about your needs for this feature. If you are interested in a quick chat about this feature (and other things you would like to see in ShareGate Desktop), please book me through this link:

    https://outlook.office365.com/owa/calendar/ShareGateDesktopUserInterviews@gsoft.com/bookings/

    If you don’t have time for a call but would still like to give your opinion, please don’t hesitate to elaborate either here or at feedback@sharegate.com

    Have a nice day,

    Antoine
    PM @ ShareGate Desktop

  4. Provide Migration from Slack to Microsoft Teams

    With the new offering from Microsoft, there will be plenty of existing users of comparable collaboration software/SaaS that will be interesting in using Microsoft Teams.

    Please add to the roadmap to provide such a feature (e.g. from Slack to Microsoft Teams)!

  6. Options to Automatically Transform Paths Too Long

    When migrating and getting a lot of path too long messages, users may want to change folder names or structure. It would interesting if a folder structure tool could be made to easily change the folder hierarchy and names before the migration

  19. 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...)

    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.

    Hi everyone,

    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.

    Thank you,
