  2. 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.

  4. Merge option not persisted when running a pre-check

    In the last couple of site copies I have done, if I choose the Merge option then run a check then go back to check the options again before I run it for real, the Merge option is no longer set.

  6. Set mapped value or ignore

    We have "set mapped value or default". That's fine but I wish we also had "set mapped value or ignore".

    So, it would try to find a match first and then ignore if nothing matches.

    This would be nice for scenarios where I'm migrating content and certain metadata is "nice to have" but not essential.
    Let's say I’m running a content migration and 70% of the content is successful but 30% fails because a value is missing at destination. To migrate the remaining 30%, I must then go back and change the mapping to “ignore”.

    I know there are workarounds,…

  7. Improve file share analysis

    Hi, can you confirm whether it's possible to add additional columns that pick up existing metadata when using the "Migration - Plan - Source Analysis - File Share" report. In additional to the default columns I'd like to find out when a document was last created and last modified from a File Share. Is this possible? Also can you confirm whether ShareGate can analyse file content to identify sensitive content before migration. Thank you.

  8. Copy Views

    To have the ability to copy only the views from a list to another would be a great addition to ShareGate Desktop.

  9. Mapping property values

    I'd like to be able to map individual property values. Currently we have a large number of previous document versions with outdated values that are not valid in the new system and need a more finely tuned solution than just having the same default value for every instance

  11. Migrate from/to Project Web Servers

    As PWS is a SharePoint based entity, Ori is wondering whether it would be possible for Sharegate to support migrations of those types of environments.

  15. Be able to copy all the members for SP groups to another one.

    Right now the only thing we're able to do is to either add a permission level to a SP group or add members. It would be nice to be able to copy the users from one to another

  16. Correct links within office files

    Some users might have Excel or other office documents with links within them that rely on the SharePoint environment where they are located. Sharegate doesn't currently modify these links to the new environment, and this can cause some integrity issues.

  19. 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.
