  3. URL Mapping for Copy and Restructure

    One of the biggest problems in copies or cleaning up a SharePoint is hardcoded URL's. Often users just don't realize what a relative URL is which can create problems with AAM's especialy for alternate routes (external vs internal) to the sites. It would be great if the mapping functionality would allow you to remap harcoded URL's to a new ones including a pre built template to simply cut off the begining and make it relative. For example http://mysite.ld.com/bananas to just ./bananas. It could also help when dealing with site copies too and from the same URL. The target can be…

  4. Option to not run Nintex workflows during migration

    Regarding the Nintex migration, your tool works great. It migrates the lists and workflows well. The only reason I brought it up is because at my previous employer I had to run support and ultimately oversaw every Nintex form/workflow migration. There were only two significant “oops” moments from developers before I took charge. It’s totally a user error, but one I thought you might want to be aware of for UX purposes.

    Instance 1:

    Our developer forgot to remove the test data from one of our test environments before migrating to production. Therefore, when the content was copied it fired…

  5. Multilingual User Interface

    Since we believe that many people are using MUI interfaces we really would appreciate if ShareGate could handle that. It is really a lot of work to do manually – you have to rename every single item

  6. Have the possibility to create projects in SG

    Since we have multiple migrations in parallel, it would be great to have the chance to create projects in SG. This will avoid to have several session IDs mixed from different migrations all together. Once one project finishes, we can easy export all reports and delete the project and easy clean-up the temporary files on C:. Also, have the chance to recover or restore an old project in case we want to do a delta (copy_teams) or revocer some info/data from that project.
    In this way we could have one sub-folder per project undermeath cache and applogs, scheduling folders.

  7. Teams and Planner migration - list of elements from each environment

    In the GUI, add the option to show or not the list of Teams and Planners, or to avoid to do the fetch when you connect. This is to avoid waiting for so long when you connect against a very large environment. Since normally a Teams or Planner will be copied as a new, it is in vane to do the fetch in destination.

  8. Cover vanity URL (Custom URL)

    Since there are more than 100 companies around the world that use vanity/custom URL, it would be nine that ShareGate can cover it.

  9. When an error or prompt pops up like "time to re-authenticate" no one ever sees it. Have a way to notify the admin team of the error

    We run our migration servers with minimal supervision. When an error or prompt pops up like "time to re-authenticate" no one ever sees it until users complain their data is not being migrated (we are moving data from file servers daily). If these prompts could trigger an email or some other alert to a designated group, we could deal with the issue right away.

  11. Add Microsoft Power Automate actions for Sharegate Migration

    I need Power Automate actions to better support many Sharegate migration activities while those migrations are running on a VM. PLEASE CONSIDER THIS FEATURE REQUEST!!!

    Some examples of important actions i would like to configure in Microsoft Power Automate would be:
    1. Notifications for when a migration starts and ends

    1. Start a report (standard or custom reports) from Power Automate. This is especially helpful if I have a saved custom report with the automatic export configured already.

    2. Get a list of all tasks (and their current status) within a certain time frame (example - get all tasks and their respective…

  13. Convert Teams Channel to new style Teams Shared Channel

    Teams Shared Channels are the new Microsoft feature for easy cross-tenancy collaboration. Microsoft do not have a tool to convert existing Teams Channels into Shared Channel.

    We have a large number of standard Channels with Guest account members and would ideally want Sharegate to permit the conversation (or copy) of the standard Channel to a Shared Channel, and migrate the Guest accounts to External accounts in the destination.

  15. Ignore Required and Unique columns when copying old versions

    If a new column us added to a list, the data filled in, and then made required the old versions of the items in that list will fail to copy. It'd be great if this limitation could be removed.

  18. Searching on "Copy Structure and Content" form

    As of now, ShareGate does not offer the option to search through the Copy Content and Structure user interface. If you have a hundreds of sites you are not able to search here. It would be a great help for the migrator operators to add a search box to this form.

  19. Ability to temporarily take over landing page to communicate to users about upcoming migration or changes

    It is difficult to get business owners of sites to communicate with their user base. They have mixed success in getting the message about site changes in front of their users. The ability to create a temporary page to communicate changes would be useful in addressing this. As admin we are asked by site owners how they can let every site user about the changes and in the event of a large multi-site migration this is too much of an overhead to try and retrieve lists of email addresses for SP2010 and SPO using PowerShell.

    A traffic light system might…
