  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Add option to save as multiple files when row limit is reached with any Excel export

    When exporting a lot of metadata, some users hit the row limit with Excel and get an error. Some would like for Sharegate to be able to work around that and automatically create multiple files.

  4. add an option to restore the prompt to connect to all sites

    Some users like the idea of the pop up to connect to all sites, when they establish a connection to a particular site in the Explorer.
    However, once the popup is denied, it doesn't come back and there's no option to restore it.

  5. 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.

  8. Pop up or visual cue when an update is available

    When there's an update, it's only applied when Sharegate is restarted. However with the application kept open within the app tray, some users that have an always on machine don't always notice there's a new version available. A pop-up, or a small visual cue (or even a button) to advise to restart Sharegate would be useful. Sometimes the updates are necessary with something like a connection to Office 365

  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-

  13. 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?

    Hi!

    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 “declined”, it has not been deleted from our feedback service. Other users will continue to have the chance to vote for this suggestion.

  15. LARGER Scroll bar!

    Please, the scroll bar is EXTREMELY small on the Select Orphaned Users and on the CLean Orphaned Users. PLEASE make it MUCH wider! it seems like it is 3 pixels wide!

  16. Make a Sharegate API to enable cloud or 3rd party solutions

    An API available for partners and customers to build solutions, especially in Office 365, that allow them to move content and eventually structure to new location.

    If Sharegate made an API, we could build our own custom actions or new App Parts with the SharePoint Framework, Azure Functions, etc. to provide value to end users on a day to day basis.
