  1. central/admin ability locally to disconnect environments using same license key

    Hi - I made a suggestion yesterday and would like to addsomething to it. We have a need to be able to administrate activity across all users of our license key. Our users of sharegate are spread across the globe and not in a single team. We would like the ability to be able to disconnect all/any connected environments by users on our license key. We are having big issues with throttling and this would help - as some users tend to leave connections on when their particular tasks have completed.

  2. Large Migrations - Migration Agent

    It would be really good to have an agent install that can be managed from a central ShareGate install for large scale migrations from File Servers. Currently ShareGate has to be installed and managed on each file server that you wish to upload, making it difficult to get a widespread view of all the tasks that are being done as well as historic reports.

  3. Allow licensing management from the Sharegate portal and Sharegate support portal

    It would be important to have an area available in the Sharegate Portal (http://sharegate.com) and Sharegate support Portal (https://support-desktop.sharegate.com) with all licenses associated with our account and be able to manage them, including deativating the license. We had a problem with the PC where Sharegate was installed and were unable to recover it and the only way we currently have is to access the licensing portal to manage our license is through the Sharegate Desktop application. If the application is not available (problems with the PC), we cannot acess the licensing management page and have to…

  4. Allow multiple windows

    Add a setting which when enabled, and you double click the sharegate.exe it opens a new process, so you can view/do 2 different things on 2 seperate screens.

  5. ShareGate Online version

    ShareGate should have online version. It will be really helpful for the user to login from anywhere and can work on migration. Licence can be given by office 365 user ID or ShareGate can have there own customer ID and login.

  6. Bigger font sizes for high resolution screens

    It would be useful to have the ability to easily increase the size of the font.  I have been using ShareGate via our sever and the font is so small as to be almost unreadable.  This may be due to the fact that I am using a very high resolution monitor on my computer and using his to access the server via remote desktop.

  7. Dark Edition or Option to Change the Interface to a Dark Theme

    I have been using ShareGate for over 4 years, and it is one of the only tools I use that does not offer a Dark Theme. Could you introduce the option for Color Theming.

  8. Ability to Export Scheduled Tasks List

    I am in the midst of replacing the Sharegate folders again due to issues with connections. We have 70 scheduled tasks that have to be manually recreated each time we have to start over with Sharegate folders. If there was a way to export the scheduled jobs, it would make life so much easier.

    Thanks!

  9. Partner Portal - Sales History - get the customer license manager encrypted url

    To provide partners to help customers with license issues, its nice to open the license manager of the customer from the Partner Portal.

    In the Sales History its possible to view the license code of customers. But to see the usage of the license we need to ask the customer to provide us the license manager (encrypted) url to view there license manager.

    Would it be possible to make a button/link in the Sales History so partners can access the License Manager of the customer?

  10. Shared tasks history

    The ability to see and interact with jobs that other licensed users have been working with. We have 5 admins and seeing what they’ve got going and interacting with those is an important need for us.

  11. Review Auto-Assign as Site Collection Administrator Process

    Review the way Sharegate uses the auto-assign feature

    - Handle differently per type of site (OneDrive, Groups, Team sites)
    - Setting per tenant / farm / connection
    - Option to auto-remove after each operations
    - Handle special cases (eDiscovery sites, NO ACCESS or Read-only)

    Since the default is now disabled. It should prevent most situation some of you are describing.

    We still feel like the Auto-Assign as site collection administrator is a useful option in certain case.

    If you encounter an issue you can always refer to this documentation to fix it. https://support-desktop.sharegate.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000647528-Can-I-remove-myself-as-an-administrator-after-I-have-auto-assigned-myself-as-one-

  12. Make the auto-update off by default

    When installing Sharegate and first launching the application, some users might face an auto-update and end up with the latest version.
    For some organisations, they might not want to allow the update if they need to approve the software.
    A solution would be to make the auto-update be turned off by default.

  14. Customize the access to only certain Sharegate features

    Possibility to provide a user an instance of Sharegate so that they can only run reports and not have access to functionality such as migration.

  15. License group management

    Allow ShareGate accounts with multiple seats to have a primary and secondary administrator, who can manage those seats vs. making it accessible for all licensed users to edit existing assignments within that license group. The current setup is not optimal for enterprise situations.

  16. Restrict licence management to a specific user

    CJ Owens from inforeliance wishes that he could restrict a seated user's ability to manage (activate/deactivate) the licence's seats for himself and other users. It would be nice if a managing user could be determined.

  18. Allow licensing per user instead of per machine

    We use virtual desktops (VDI) and it seems that your licences attach themselves to computer names. As we use VDI terminal our computer names are never the same. The way that you currently track licences make using ShareGate very unattractive.

    We purchase many licensed software solutions and all except ShareGate run in a VDI environment without having the deactivate the licence every time you use it. Could the license model be changed?

  19. Customize the location of Sharegate logs and data

    Customize the location of Logs / Data cache / Migration Reports / etc.
    - To avoid disk full on C:
    - For backup purposes
    - To use a central location for sharing
