  1. Display which template has been chosen on the "Import from file share" screen

    Please add an options summary for which Template has been selected, on the migration "Import from file share" pre-migration page.

    This will allow a quick way to see which template has been selected on the "Import from file share" page, without having to open the "Options" screen.

  3. Support comments migration on list items in M365

    Microsoft has a feature that allow users to add comments on list items:

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/add-and-reply-to-comments-in-list-items-9407aab9-6d43-4756-af72-d38177814a6e

    Currently, this does not seems supported in ShareGate Desktop and it would be nice to have the possibility to migrate these.

  5. Destination library data scanning improvement

    When migrating into a library with millions of documents, sometimes the scanning process mid migration seems to take a lot of time. If we could avoid having to scan the destination at all, that would be great

  7. Navigation Merging

    Currently, regardless of the settings in Sharegate, when you copy navigation from one site to another, it overwrites the navigation on the destination site. My use case is I am the SP admin for 6 divisions of a larger corporation. I am trying to set a similar look and feel to all the sites. I would like to have a base template navigation that I can copy and paste to sites and have some of the division sites have personalized navigation. If I ever have to update some of the navigation, it would be great to update the template then…

  13. Apply classification with sensitivity or retention labels when migrating files

    When migrating files from on-prem to Office 365 some clients require content to be classified before storing this in the destination site for compliance. This solution requires the use of Microsoft Information Protection and either sensitivity or retention labels. It would be great to have an option to set a default label for files when copying them using ShareGate. This feature would also be useful when migrating content between sites in Office 365 when the destination has a different default classification label.

  14. Preserve Communication site Design

    Communication Sites can be created with 3 designs:
    - Topic
    - Showcase
    - Blank

    ShareGate Desktop will always set the destination Communication Site to "Topic", even if you select another one. I would like the application to preserve the selected design from the Source.

  15. Look and feel

    Hi, hope you are well !

    I would like to mention that I really love the product and I am using it on a daily basis. It is working very well, very fast, no issues on performance.

    I do have a small suggestion on the look and feel, especially in the "copy" section. The 'tiles' for "Copy Structure" / "Copy Content" / " ..." are very high/large. As a frequent user, you know which one to use.
    I am more interested in the "Recent copy sessions". Unfortunately that was moved down below a time ago, and is therefore less accessible…

  17. Migrate all Nintex Workflow versions

    When migrating a workflow with different versions, ShareGate Desktop only picks up the latest version. This also means this only brings the history of this latest versions, none of the other one.

    Please support the migration of all workflow's versions and history list

  19. only update links internal to the site collection migrating

    I would expect that links within a site are updated (which they are). But it is also update links to site that have not yet migrated. Creating extra work for our admins manually fixing these links post migration

  20. Add additional fields to the default key properties

    Hi,

    Can you add additional fields to the default key properties? Because we're always experiencing multiple matching item error. We cannot always fix the source list to fix this issue because that is client data. Please just add more default key properties for us to avoid encountering this issue often. It is very time-consuming to edit key properties for each list with multiple matching item error. This can be fixed by simply adding more fields to the default key properties of ShareGate.
