  1. Update Nintex User Defined Actions (UDA)

    Update Nintex User Defined Actions - Sharegates Nintex-FAQ states that it's possible to migrate a UDA, but what it doesn't mention is that the UDA will not be updated if the UDA already exists in the destination. This provides a false positive that the migration was successful when it's has not migrated the UDA changes.

    • 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. …

      • Restart cancelled Report from Tasks

        A suggestion:

        I was running a report and needed to go. So I cancelled the report while it was not done.

        When I was at home I started a new report with the same parameters.

        I could not resume the other one I cancelled earlier.

        When I started the new report it was very fast with the first data because, I think, it was cashed.

        Why not use this and make it possible for users to resume a report that was canceled earlier?

        • 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

          • Report on O365 groups External users

            I am looking for something that can tell me if I have external users in the O365 group owners/members.  The current reports seem to only allow selecting site collections. (or onedrive)

            • 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

                We have started working on this feature. We will soon allow you to rename your migration tasks once they are launched. This should make it easier for you to find what you are really looking for.

                We will keep you updated once it’s done.

              • To be able to use PowerShell to delete list items.

                To be able to use PowerShell to delete list items would be great, instead of going via the UI everytime.

                • 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.

                  • Filtering Lists using External Data type

                    It would be nice to have a reporting feature so that we can filter lists that are using "External Data" column type.

                    • 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.

                          Item level migration with workflow triggers the workflow which is not expected. There should be warning at least.

                          • Custom Feature GUIDs and Titles

                            It's not unusual to encounter opaque CUSTOM FEATURES warnings/errors like this:

                            The following custom site collection features are activated: '8dfaf93d-e23c-4471-9347-07368668ddaf', '893627d9-b5ef-482d-a3bf-2a605175ac36', '738250ba-9327-4dc0-813a-a76928ba1842', '5709298b-1876-4686-b257-f101a923f58d'. Custom features need to be manually deployed at the destination of the migration.

                            While we all understand the need to report the specific feature GUID, it would certainly be an improvement to include the feature name, when known:

                            The following custom site collection features are activated: '8dfaf93d-e23c-4471-9347-07368668ddaf' (MobileWordViewer), '893627d9-b5ef-482d-a3bf-2a605175ac36' (MobilePowerPointViewer), '738250ba-9327-4dc0-813a-a76928ba1842' (PowerPointEditServer), '5709298b-1876-4686-b257-f101a923f58d' (PowerPointServer).

                            • Optimize Permission Matrix Reports

                              I ran a permission matrix report on a site collection. Holy ****! It returned 19,000 (with 3 zeros) items. Running the report took 20ish minutes. Then expanding took 20ish minutes. Then exporting it took 20ish minutes. In the end, it was a 330MB file.
                              It would be nice if it didn't take so long.
                              now.. i tried running a permissions matrix on all 1900 sites. it ran and completed. then when i tried expanding it, well, let's say 24GB of ram wasn't enough. It eventually caused the VM to crash.
                              So, maybe, just maybe if some optimization was accomplished, it…

                                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!

                                • Site/Collection structure report

                                  Report that can show you the listed site assets for an entire subsite or collection.

                                  Basically, it would be like looking at the site contents for any selected targets. This would help people flatten there footprints, or consolidate material that's similar between sites. This would help with migration planning, unused content cleanup and help eliminate user created subs that have no content or activity.

                                  • Include modified date in source analysis

                                    Please could you include the file modified date as a field in the inventory report (now source analysis).

                                    This would be extremely helpful in cases where you are planning to migrate content within a certain timeframe (e.g. last 6 months). I understand this feature is available in the actual migration but it would be useful in the report to gain a better understanding of the size of the data set.

                                    Thanks,

                                    • 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.

                                      • Orphaned users: Distinguish disabled vs deleted user accounts

                                        Please update your orphaned user report to distinguish disabled vs deleted user accounts. Metalogix ControlPoint can do this and it's very handy in an environment like ours where we often disable users if they are out on extended leave.

                                        • Library analysis

                                          my use-case was the desire to just export a spreadsheet of all folders and files within the document library, and Source Analysis appeared to be the way to do that. If I analyse the entire Site Collection and export that as a spreadsheet, I will then need to filter out all irrelevant sites, pages, libraries, folders, files. Perhaps a Library Analysis could be added as an option?
