  1. Support Migration of Web Parts Connection

    It’s planned to be able to migrated Pages with Webpart connections on the future? We get a lot of Warning saying:

    Warning for version 13.0: This page contains WebParts that are connected. Connections are not supported by Sharegate and will need to be recreated manually.

  5. Support Column Formatting JSON Templates

    You can use column formatting to customize how fields in SharePoint lists and libraries are displayed. To do this, you construct a JSON object that describes the elements that are displayed when a field is included in a list view, and the styles to be applied to those elements. The column formatting does not change the data in the list item or file; it only changes how it’s displayed to users who browse the list. Anyone who can create and manage views in a list can use column formatting to configure how view fields are displayed.

  6. Include Copy Content Filter to Copy Structure

    We want to migrate a site collection to O365, but I only want to migrate content that has been updated or created in the last year, so I want to use the Copy Structure feature, but I want to see the filters available in the Copy Content option. Would be great if the filter options were available in both options.

  8. Disable Workflows when Copying or Importing Content

    When using the copy content option to do an incremental migration on a library, the approval workflow on this library was started for all items in the library. Is this expected behavior? If yes, this information should really be provided as I was unable to find anything on your site referencing this or what to do to prevent it from happening. This can’t be something we would want to happen. It had quite a big impact on completing a migration since it created a huge problem I had to clean up.

  11. Remove All Permission/Turn on Read-Only of Source Site After Migration

    Users wish to lock their sites during the migration to avoid having to deal with any user changes, during, or post migration.

    Having a feature that would extract all the source site permissions (I'm thinking PMR), strip it and leave it read-only for everyone, and then allow to use the extracted permissions to re-apply them at the destination (or source if they wish to), could be very useful for a good number of users.

  12. 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.

    Hello everyone,

    After a review of our roadmap, this suggestion is not a high priority at the moment.

    With all the improvements that were done to the SharePoint PnP Modernization framework (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/transform/modernize-userinterface-site-pages) over the last year, we feel like this is a solid alternative right now to convert classic pages to modern ones so we decided to put our efforts in adding more migration capabilities (Teams migration coming soon) to our tool instead.

    We’ll keep the suggestion open and will monitor the comments and feedback and will review it in the future.

    Thank you,

  13. Same Rule as the Filer When Migrating Folders (Time Range)

    Right now, Sharegate is migrating the entire folder structure with a lot of empty folders regardless of if there are active files (modified in the past 18 months) within them. I would like Sharegate to apply the same rule on the folders when none of the file under it are migrated. In those cases, the folder should be ignored.

  15. Migration of Default.aspx Page Without Migrating the Site

    Currently, the root site needs to be migrated to move its corresponding default.aspx page. I'd like to be able to migrate the Default.aspx page alone.

  16. Search Option in the Copy UI

    -With a lot of sites in my tenant it would be really helpfull, that when I’m in the select source/destination was able to search for a site.

    -Would be nice if you could find something in either the 'from' or 'to' display box by searching or even a search string (N25*) or something similar.

  17. 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

    Hi everyone.

    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.

    Cheers,

    J-P
