  1. Migrate permissions from one group to another

    We need the ability to migrate current permissions from one permission group into a new permission group. We are currently moving our collab sites to SPO. New permission groups are created with the site and we want to move the members of the groups in collab into the new group created in SPO. As it stands today, we need to retype the users in or move an old permission group into SPO.

  3. During "Copy User Permission" on subsite, just add user to SP Group with access to subsite

    When using "Copy User Permission" with the "Copy Group membership" on a subsite, the tool will add the target user to all SP Groups in the site collection, not just those that the target subsite has access to. This can lead to a user having access on sites not scoped for the "Copy User Permissions" operation

  4. Convert SP group members into M365 group members

    Not sure if this is possible, but make it easy to convert who is in a SharePoint Group and add them to a team membership group.

  5. Be able to expand by levels in the PMR

    Right now you can only expand all groups or manually select them, it would be nice to be able to expand all the first level permissions and so on

  7. Permissions Matrix Needs to Include Group Membership

    The permissions matrix report needs to be include who is in each SharePoint group. Or that could be a separate report for group membership.

  8. Copy user permissions in Bulk

    Our company is doing Active Directory migrations now. All the users will get new accounts. This is for thousands of employees. Currently we are using ShareGate to copy user permissions one by one.

    Is there a way we could do it in bulk? We have the lists in Excel.

  9. Make an option to auto-expand the groups in PMR an option, not the default behavior.

    You might still need to consider to offer as a choice for users to choose to expand or not the groups in the PMR when auto-exporting it in a library, as I got an issue opening the report with groups expanded when the report is huge (complex site collection with too many unique permissions)

  10. Hub Site Reporting

    It be really great to run reports such as Permissions and everything else against a Hubsite and all associated sites. There are many groups people create that I don't care to know permissions for but I need to do reports for anything associated with our hubsite.

  11. Quick Select multiple users for PMR

    You can select specific users to run the PMR on, but you have to search each user one by one. If you want to scope down the PMR to a specific department of 40 users, you have to manually add those users by hand and it takes a long time.

  12. Add option to run multiple reports with a CSV file

    Add an option to run multiple reports based on parameter like URL, with a CSV file. Users would like the ability to report (Permissions Matrix Report in example) on multiple sites or drives, but it can be difficult to specify which ones and some users might want to feed a CSV file with URLs to do so

  13. Display users under their SharePoint Groups

    When running a permissions matrx and expanding the SharePoing Groups can you make the users in that group appear under it so it keeps the users in that group together instead of lumped to getter because it doesn't make any since when looking at the exported report when I just have a list of users.

  14. See users who have permission through a sharing link

    A user has access to a specific library folder that was granted by a Sharing link which requires they be internal users. SharePoint interface then shows me the associated users and with manage links hyperlink to administer. However these users do not show up in the Matrix report. My expectation would be to see the user in the matrix report since they appear in SharePoint.

  15. Customized the Permission Matrix Report

    What to acheive:
    For the business users, we want to hide some columns and have some filtering (e.g. "Permission Levels" is not "Contribute").

    Business Case:
    We need to run this report quarterly for the business users. And to them, a lot of the fields don’t make any sense and can cause confusion. Therefore, we are hoping if there is an option to set the filters/hide columns.

    Can we do this through the Sharegate Shell?

    Definitely something to look into! Thanks for taking the time to share.

    The PMR or “Permissions Matrix Report” is one of our popular reports, it makes sense to want to leverage it for more than just a report.

    We’ll be evaluating what the best way to present this information shortly with our teams. As soon as I know more, will keep you posted with an update.
    Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback again.

  18. Permission backup

    Would be nice to be able to backup permission and use the backup to bring them back the way they were.

  19. Better Permissions Matrix Report (PMR) Export

    • Model PMR extract in Excel as Pivot Tables and charts.
    • It would be useful to be able to export the permissions matrix report as a PDF file, as well as a spreadsheet. -Export the PMR as a HTML report

  20. Display Anonymous Guests Links in the Reporting Tool

    I would like to have the anonymous links of documents and files being shared. Right now, I don't know to which address the documents are being shared. I don't want to disable the sharing as some of them are required.
