    Hi everyone,

    Since ShareGate Desktop now allow us to automatically export migration reports (and other reports) when a task is done to a SharePoint library, you may easily setup a Microsoft Flow or workflow to notify you when a task is over. If you need some inspiration, I wrote a blog post on how users can leverage Microsoft Flow to share reports by email: https://sharegate.com/blog/use-microsoft-flow-automatically-send-sharegate-desktop-reports

    It’s not a native way to get notified, but a nice workaround you could use until we add official email notifications (if we do at some point).

    Cheers,

  2. Ability to Run a Scheduled Task Again

    I have an audit report that I run weekly for a site collection and it times out from time to time. Is there a way to "retry now" to run the report in the All Tasks, Tasks window. There is Refresh, Add, export, etc. is there one that can be set, or when you open it "failed, want to retry now?" Thank you.

  4. Button for "Delete all" in Tasks view

    I would like to delete all my tasks at once, as I have multiple pages worth of tasks, and it would take a long time to go through them all, even with 500 items per page.

  5. Add option to run scheduled tasks now

    Had a report scheduled to run in 10 minutes but wanted to kick it off now. Had to edit the report to have it run a minute after my computer clock was showing. Should have an option to "run now" or a check box instead of trying to manipulate the timer. Thanks!

  7. Show size of data migrated in Migration Report

    I want to be able to see how much of the content was migrated at a certain point during the migration, and at the end in the migration report. Currently, the MR does not display any information about size of items migrated.

  9. report on the completed tasks

    For example, I want to export to Excel or something all the tasks I have completed in the Sharegate tool. Not export the actions themselves. I'm looking for a report of what I have done.

  10. Add a default library option to the automatic export of reports

    Automatic exporting reports is a good feature. But is there any way to configure the destination path fixed, instead of configuring the reports path every time ?

  11. Show list of Success on Pre-Check report

    I'd like to have the ability to run a Pre-Check migration report that will show not only the Warning and Errors, but the successes as well, just like an actual Migration report would.

  14. Run Sharegate as a Service

    The ability to run ShareGate Desktop to run as a service for Automation of reports?

    This would be really handy, as machines need to be rebooted regularly for updates, and having to log in to relaunch the app is counter productive.

  15. Ability to rename a PMR and other reports

    Hi
    When creating a scheduled task like "Permissions Matrix Report" it does not allow you to name it, it only indicates the name of the site and this may coincide with other reports. It is very difficult to identify them
    Thank you

    It would be nice to have an option that took a copy job and/or scheduled task and exported the job as a powershell script, or something to the way SSMS allows you to Create as...

  18. Better task names

    I'm doing some migrations and would really like to see exactly from which library/site/list that i'm migrating to and from.
    i don't find "Copy 1 item from Network-
    Voice.... to Network..." very useful. the name of the item would be much better.

  20. Filters for auto-export of migration reports

    Under migration options it, would be nice to define filter criteria for the export (same as when filtering a migration report in the UI).
    If running scheduled task, perhaps only reports containing errors and warnings are candidates for export to a library. This makes it possible to limit the amount of data in the reports library (number of items and file size)
