  3. Advanced item version management

    Add more features for versioning reporting and management, such as:

    - Report on versioning for each list and (especially) library.
    The report should show the versioning settings of the lists and all files with multiple versions with their sizes, sum-total size of all versions for each file. Each version counts against the storage quota of the sites, so this report would be useful to find out which sites are taking up a lot of space because of versioning.
    - Revert all files back to a version that is dated prior to specified date.
    - Delete all versions except the n…

  4. Bulk Edit Metadata (on a site, from the term store)

    It would be useful to have a report to get all metadata for a whole site, but thinking further, If the Bulk Edit Metadata would work on a site level, this would allow more flexibility with the destination paths and general management of a full site and would become an easy method to get full metadata exports.

  5. Replace/Map user across environment without doing a migration

    I see that I can map users during a migration process to change, but is there any way I can update just the user? Like, replace my name all over their site collection with a different user in an easy way with this tool?

    Hi everyone!
    Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback via Sharegate’s Uservoice. Unfortunately, the suggestion provided is not in the current roadmap and has therefore been declined. Although the current status of this suggestion is under “decline”, it has not been deleted from our feedback service. Other users will continue to have the chance to vote for this suggestion.

  7. Add new items with bulk edit metadata Excel export/import

    Allow to add list items by adding them to the exported Excel document from the Bulk Edit Metadata tool and importing it.

  8. Find and replace values in bulk edit and content migration

    It would be nice to have a "Find and replace" behavior in the custom template of content migration and bulk edit. Right we can use the mapped values, use a custom values, prompt values, create a default one or ignore the property. Would be nice if Sharegate could find specific values and replace it

  9. Bulk edit metadata without affecting version number

    We would like to bulk update the metadata of a library. However, we would like to keep the current version number of the documents, so it cannot be increased when we use ShareGate to bulk update the metadata.

  12. Check in files with another account

    I log on to the software my my personal account, but it would be nice to be able to do the check in as a system account like you can do for a migration/copy.

  13. Copy content needs "use source connection as destination" option

    When doing a "Copy content" type of migration, sometimes I am moving things within the same site. It would be nice if there was an option on the "Select Destination" screen to use the same connection info as the source (URL and authentication).

  14. Option to not auto-publish during migration

    Because Sharegate auto publishes forms during a migration, Joanne has ended up stuck with forms that cannot be deleted (due to a layout issue). Being able to chose whether you want to publish at the destination or not in a migration would fix this kind of issue.

  16. Suspend alerts for bulk metadata updates

    Please add an option when making bulk metadata updates to suspend alerts. When changing content types on any library, we often have several (sometimes 100s) of people subscribed to get alerts. In the past, we've used a PowerShell script to suspend alerts, but sometimes we forget. Adding this as an option would be a lifesaver!

  17. Ignore version numbers

    When copying items with the "limit versions" option, there should be an option to ignore the version numbers, as it seems Sharegate creates every version of the item and sends most of them to the trash so that the version numbers match, but often these numbers aren't important, and the migration speed would increase a lot.
