  3. 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.

    Declined  ·  Antoine Bousquet responded

    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.

  5. 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?

  7. Powershell: Progress Indicator for Migration cmdlets

    A progress switch for the migration cmdlets would be cool so that we can see how much has been migrated.

    Currently when I automate Import-Document to migrate terrabytes to SPO I am sitting in front of a black powershell window that waits. To see progress I have to switch to the GUI and hit f5 in the session "Migration Reporst" view to get an indication.

  9. Append Condition for Export-Report Command

    When using a CSV and foreach loop to migrate to and from multiple destinations. Often users would wish to end with a single migration report from the operation. An append command to complement -overwrite would be very useful in these cases.

    It's currently possible to use export-session from the UI to export multiple sessions if that helps.

  11. Copy Over Ratings of Items

    I don't know if it is possible to copy over the ratings of items.

    I copied over an Announcement and it had ratings on a 1-5 scale and I noticed, when I did Copy Site Objects, that it didn't copy the ratings over. They were there, however the ratings weren't filled out by the users.

  14. Migrate modern MS Teams Wiki pages

    Migrate modern MS Teams Wiki pages. As of right now, we can migrate the .mht file in the background but we cannot re-establish it as a modern wiki page at the destination.

  17. Migrate SharePoint calendar to Office 365 Group calendar

    A standard SharePoint calendar, on-premise or else, could be used as an Office 365 Group Calendar. Some users might wish to migrate their old team site calendar as such.

  18. Option to disable link correction for content in Copy Structure

    Some users might want to disable any link correction when migrating a whole site. It could be a good idea to have a option to disable content link correction.

  19. Option to avoid migrating SharePoint Groups during site collection migration

    Allow the option, through the Copy Structure feature, to tell Sharegate not to migrate SharePoint Groups. Right now, if you migrate a site collection, although you can tell Sharegate not to migrate the permissions from the source to the destination, the SharePoint Groups are still created

  20. Cutover Process after Copy

    Ability to set source environment read-only, setup URL redirection and perform final delta copy in once simple cutover process. This would be helpful for a single switch migration.

    Example of Process


    1. Perform initial copy from source to target

    2. Test

    3. Resolve any/all issues

    4. Cutover from source to target


      • Source SharePoint environment is set as Read-Only or Inaccessible.

      • URL Rewrite (redirection) is setup in IIS on source environment so all links redirect to target site.

      • A final delta copy is run to update changes.
