  1. Revamp the Authentication System

    -I would love to have only to submit one set of credentials (and maybe have to say “use for all”, for example) and then have source and destination login with these automatically.

    -Keep my credentials saved so i dont have to reauthenticate every single time

    -When performing a migration i’m being asked to sign in for both the source and the destination whereas a lot of the time its the same credentials for both. I.e. Within the same tenant. It would be helpful to just be able to signin once at the beginning of a session.

    -saved credentials / accounts. …

    • Migrating MicroFeed List

      Dear sir/madam,

      At a customer, we are planning to migrate from SharePoint on-premises to SharePoint Online.

      They have a lot of MicroFeed lists and they would like to migrate the content.

      On your website, I see this is not supported: https://support.share-gate.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000600227-Copying-the-content-from-to-a-MicroFeed-list-is-not-supported. Do you know if there is a workaround for this?

      With kind regards,

      Jim van Leeuwen

      • Rename Tasks

        File migration jobs have a default name that cannot be changed. This creates lots of jobs with (near) identical names making it nearly impossible to determine which job is which task.

        Make that option available in the UI and for Powershell jobs

        • Move List with PowerApps Customized form

          Hi,

          Can we move list with PowerApps Customized form to another site using ShareGate? Currently it is not possible in PowerApps to tag along its customized form once its list is moved.

          • Make Errors and Warnings Clickable

            Hello, It would be nice to have Errors and Warnings clickable when looking at the migration task instead of having to manually create a filter. Thanks.

            • Use Azure Blob Storage as a source

              I have a bunch of files (775GB approx.) in Azure Blob Storage and am wondering whether there is any capability for Sharegate to do the move from the Azure Blob Storage to SharePoint Online?

              • Migrate to Windows Server Local drive as Destination

                The ability to copy from SharePoint site to Windows Server Local drive.

                I can’t find a code in ShareGate powershell module that can do an incremental copy from our SharePoint site (source) to our Cloud server (destination). We’re going to run this powershell in the windows server 2012 R2 task scheduler

                Basically, the goal is to create a schedule task of incremental copy from SharePoint site to Windows Server Local drive.

                • Automatic Export of Scheduled Tasks

                  I have a few tasks on a weekly schedule. I thought it would be great if a completed task could be automatically exported to a SharePoint library for end-users to see and work with. Now I’m the only one in the company of 2000 employees that can run sharegate. I won’t be able to run tasks on demand. It has to be some automated functionality.

                  • Structure Migration Bulk Rename / URL Changes

                    It would be nice to be able to select bulk lists or libraries and have the ability to change the name and url for the migration.

                    • Deeper Inventory Check - Check for Office Online Compatibility

                      Hi

                      It would help me a lot if I would have an option in the inventory which checks if the files will have trouble in Excel online e.g. xml maps, Web queries, ...
                      Same for Word and PowerPoint.

                      Background: We are having more and more people who only have E1 license or lower and they need to work with the online versions of Office.

                      • Check that you can't migrate to same site if the URL are different

                        The analyst used two different addresses (one fully qualified, one not) that resolved to the same site. Since the URL were different, it went undetected when we started the migration and the site migrated to itself.

                        Please add an additional check so that does not happen.

                                • Ability to report on empty/null values

                                  When I'm editing the options in a custom report, I noticed that under Filters I'm unable to look for an empty/null value. I'd like to be able to do something like Where Owners contains "", but the "Add User or Group" field requires something to be valid. Even better would be an enhancement to add "is empty" and "is not empty" choices to the Operator dropdown.

                                  • Detect Which O365 Service Created a Site (ex: Yammer, Teams, etc.)

                                    Is there any way to see what O365 groups were created by Yammer? If not that would a useful filter to add in Explorer. Thanks.
