  1. Migration of ASPX Pages in Insane Mode

    That’s unfortunate, since recently just changed over 15K files from .htm/.html to .aspx as the .html files prompt for download in Sharepoint Online. Therefore, we were advised to change them on the source. Are there any plans to change the Sharegate application to allow to copy .aspx pages in Insane mode?

  3. Migration of Multiple OneDrives at Once

    Even though it is possible in PowerShell, having the ability to migrate multiple OneDrives at once in the UI would be very useful.

  4. Copy list items without attachments

    I have not found the option to copy list items without the attached documents. It would be a useful feature.
    Sometimes, after migrating, we need to redo an incremental migration only for updates on the metadata fields, it would be a lot faster in case attachments were not copied again...

    After thinking about it, we have decided to decline this suggestion.

    This would require quite some development effort from our team and we prefer to put this effort on a better support of the modern workplace.

    Thank you for your suggestion.

  6. Preserving Workflow Statuses During Migration

    It would be great if Sharegate could preserve statuses during a SP migration.

  7. 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

  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. custom views in document sets

    In ShareGate Desktop, custom views selected at the list level are applied within documents sets as well. I would like the same behavior as in SharePoint that no longer applies the view when opening a document set to display all items within it.

  13. Information policies not migrated

    To migrate SharePoint libraries' information policies. At this time, Sharegate will preserve the retention value of a document, but will not migrate the actual information policy of a library.

  18. 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.

    After thinking about it, we decided to close this suggestion.

    We feel like our current offer should cover most case for Box migration to SharePoint.

    We know PowerShell is not always the easiest thing to use, but our support can always help you when needed.

  20. Specify Content Database When Migrating

    We have a requirement to place certain sites in a specific content database for compliance reasons, however we are not able to find the option in the migration tool to do so. If this is an available option, can you let me know where to find it? If not can it be included in a future release?
