  2. Destination library data scanning improvement

    When migrating into a library with millions of documents, sometimes the scanning process mid migration seems to take a lot of time. If we could avoid having to scan the destination at all, that would be great

  4. Navigation Merging

    Currently, regardless of the settings in Sharegate, when you copy navigation from one site to another, it overwrites the navigation on the destination site. My use case is I am the SP admin for 6 divisions of a larger corporation. I am trying to set a similar look and feel to all the sites. I would like to have a base template navigation that I can copy and paste to sites and have some of the division sites have personalized navigation. If I ever have to update some of the navigation, it would be great to update the template then…

  9. Ability to copy Teams Channel content into another channel - Merge Teams channels

    Admin redacted:

    Add the ability to merge teams channels into existing teams channels.


    Original description:

    With the Teams copy functionality it would be nice to be able to select a channel within the same Team as the source team.
    Example would be using the functionality to merge multiple channels within the same team into one new channel.

  15. Apply classification with sensitivity or retention labels when migrating files

    When migrating files from on-prem to Office 365 some clients require content to be classified before storing this in the destination site for compliance. This solution requires the use of Microsoft Information Protection and either sensitivity or retention labels. It would be great to have an option to set a default label for files when copying them using ShareGate. This feature would also be useful when migrating content between sites in Office 365 when the destination has a different default classification label.

  16. Preserve Communication site Design

    Communication Sites can be created with 3 designs:
    - Topic
    - Showcase
    - Blank

    ShareGate Desktop will always set the destination Communication Site to "Topic", even if you select another one. I would like the application to preserve the selected design from the Source.

  17. Look and feel

    Hi, hope you are well !

    I would like to mention that I really love the product and I am using it on a daily basis. It is working very well, very fast, no issues on performance.

    I do have a small suggestion on the look and feel, especially in the "copy" section. The 'tiles' for "Copy Structure" / "Copy Content" / " ..." are very high/large. As a frequent user, you know which one to use.
    I am more interested in the "Recent copy sessions". Unfortunately that was moved down below a time ago, and is therefore less accessible…

  19. Migrate all Nintex Workflow versions

    When migrating a workflow with different versions, ShareGate Desktop only picks up the latest version. This also means this only brings the history of this latest versions, none of the other one.

    Please support the migration of all workflow's versions and history list
