  1. Hub site and their associated sites report

    Is there a report, or can a report be created, to surface hub sites and their associated sites? We are introducing Hub sites & their associated sites as the intranet. Such a report would be of great value.

  2. Provide a report target via spreadsheet

    We were looking for a way to automate the entry of any sites list. For example, if we have a spreadsheet of the list of sites we need to run the report on, we could run the report on these sites using PowerShell rather than entering each of the sites from the spreadsheet manually or running the report for the whole environment and then filtering out unwanted sites.

  6. Workflow report - indicate which list uses it

    This report would be even better if a column was provided that indicated WHICH LIST had the workflow. When a site has scores of lists, it's a real hassle tracking down the offending list.

  7. Add a Checked Out Date column to the Checked-out document report

    We use the 'Checked Out Document' report to track the checked out pages. Could you please add an addtional 'Checked Out Date' column to be available via All Columns section. The checked out report can be very useful if the field is to be added.

  10. report on sites with a read-only lock on them

    Since the read-only lock on a site can cause a great number of issues during a migration, being able to report on sites with read-only locks could be very useful to some organizations.

  11. Mass Select Reporting results

    After running a report, you have to select each individual items that you want to affect. Ctrl+Click or Shift+Click are not currently possible and would help out manipulating the results.

  12. Ability to Merge Reports Together

    When your reporting job is too large and takes a long time to process (or even sometimes fails), you're encouraged to reduce your scope. For instance, run a PMR on your subsites instead of your whole site collection at once. However, if you want a global portrait of your site collection's permissions, it gets tricky.

    It would be interesting to then have the ability to merge the individual reports together directly in Sharegate (not manually in Excel).

  16. Consider a service that stores report data in a data warehouse

    Sharegate has great reports, but it is a challenge to run reports against a large tenant. We wrote custom scripts that inventory all sites and subwebs to gather hundreds of metadata. We write these data, including permission matrix, to SQL server database then use Power BI for analytics. Has Sharegate considered as part of their offering to have a way to configure Sharegate to do this work for us and write it to a configurable SQL Server (Azure or on prem) under our control? I'd be happy to elaborate.

  18. External Sharing Report user value format

    Hi,
    the external sharing report from the explorer where you can choose among Site, List, List Content is good, but it would be great if we could build a custom report from it (i.e. to choose different columns - for users, we only have display names values separated by comma which is a bit annoying for futher processes)
    thanks
