    Definitely something to look into! Thanks for taking the time to share.

    The PMR or “Permissions Matrix Report” is one of our popular reports, it makes sense to want to leverage it for more than just a report.

    We’ll be evaluating what the best way to present this information shortly with our teams. As soon as I know more, will keep you posted with an update.
    Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback again.

  2. Better Permissions Matrix Report (PMR) Export


    • Model PMR extract in Excel as Pivot Tables and charts.

    • It would be useful to be able to export the permissions matrix report as a PDF file, as well as a spreadsheet.
      -Export the PMR as a HTML report

  4. Permission backup

    Would be nice to be able to backup permission and use the backup to bring them back the way they were.

  5. Copy user permissions in Bulk

    Our company is doing Active Directory migrations now. All the users will get new accounts. This is for thousands of employees. Currently we are using ShareGate to copy user permissions one by one.

    Is there a way we could do it in bulk? We have the lists in Excel.

  6. Permissions matrix report showing files that inherit permissions

    Would like to really see a complete overview of all the files present in the library including those that inherit permissions.

  7. See users who have permission through a sharing link

    A user has access to a specific library folder that was granted by a Sharing link which requires they be internal users. SharePoint interface then shows me the associated users and with manage links hyperlink to administer. However these users do not show up in the Matrix report. My expectation would be to see the user in the matrix report since they appear in SharePoint.

  8. Add option to run multiple reports with a CSV file

    Add an option to run multiple reports based on parameter like URL, with a CSV file. Users would like the ability to report (Permissions Matrix Report in example) on multiple sites or drives, but it can be difficult to specify which ones and some users might want to feed a CSV file with URLs to do so

  9. Hub Site Reporting

    It be really great to run reports such as Permissions and everything else against a Hubsite and all associated sites. There are many groups people create that I don't care to know permissions for but I need to do reports for anything associated with our hubsite.

  10. Quick Select multiple users for PMR

    You can select specific users to run the PMR on, but you have to search each user one by one. If you want to scope down the PMR to a specific department of 40 users, you have to manually add those users by hand and it takes a long time.

  11. Display users under their SharePoint Groups

    When running a permissions matrx and expanding the SharePoing Groups can you make the users in that group appear under it so it keeps the users in that group together instead of lumped to getter because it doesn't make any since when looking at the exported report when I just have a list of users.

  12. Customized the Permission Matrix Report

    What to acheive:
    For the business users, we want to hide some columns and have some filtering (e.g. "Permission Levels" is not "Contribute").

    Business Case:
    We need to run this report quarterly for the business users. And to them, a lot of the fields don’t make any sense and can cause confusion. Therefore, we are hoping if there is an option to set the filters/hide columns.

    Can we do this through the Sharegate Shell?

  13. Display Anonymous Guests Links in the Reporting Tool

    I would like to have the anonymous links of documents and files being shared. Right now, I don't know to which address the documents are being shared. I don't want to disable the sharing as some of them are required.

  14. Permissions Matrix Needs to Include Group Membership

    The permissions matrix report needs to be include who is in each SharePoint group. Or that could be a separate report for group membership.

  15. Make an option to auto-expand the groups in PMR an option, not the default behavior.

    You might still need to consider to offer as a choice for users to choose to expand or not the groups in the PMR when auto-exporting it in a library, as I got an issue opening the report with groups expanded when the report is huge (complex site collection with too many unique permissions)

  17. To be able to select to report objects that have no permissions after a migration

    After a migration - upgrade and rewrite - we have found some folders with no permissions "This object has no permissions" in the PMR. These are where users and or groups do not exist in the new system. With no time to go back and remigrate and no easy way to map these permissions anyway we are running reports on all areas and picking out these lines in the exported spreadsheet, then can update the permissions using a system administrator account. With more migrations to come we would like to be able to report direct.

  18. expand all 'view' buttons in the PMR

    "When we run a permissions matrix report, any inherited permissions usually show up like the image below. Is there a way to automatically ‘view’ these without having to go through possibly hundreds and manually clicking ‘view’ to expand these. With larger items, it makes it difficult to understand the export when you have to find the list library, see that it shows it’s inherited, and then scroll back up to the parent (which you could get wrong) to see what the permissions are for the item you first looked at. I’m looking for something similar to the ‘expand all groups’…

  19. Have the PMR work when running on whole tenants

    A lot of times, getting the Permission Matrix Report for all site collections within a tenant is required. Right now, selecting multiple site collections makes the report fail and never complete. If you have 10K OneDrives, 5K Office 365 Groups and 2K site collections, we would need an option to get the same information that the PMR provides, but on a bigger scope
