  2. Site Downloads and Recycle bin

    Site downloads really should include Recycle bin files. I'm not looking to migrate, delete, or restore content, but we should be able to export the entire site as-is including a folder of deleted items. We had legal use case where this was needed and your product did not support it.

  3. Export Teams conversations to HTML

    Export only the conversation to HTML without having to copy the whole Team? I have some requests from customers who want to keep some "important" conversation for reference.

  8. Export Site to Zip File

    I have just downloaded the contents of a site collection to archive the contents. It would be great to be able to have the option export that as a zip file as well. Thank you.

  10. 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.

  11. Backing up a Workflow Task List

    I get the reasons that you don't migrate a workflow task list; however, it would be very helpful to be able to create a copy of that list content.

    We have many sites that use SharePoint workflows for critical business processes, and we need to be able to copy those lists to their newly migrated sites so they have the approval history. This is a show-stopper for some of our finance and BPI sites.

    I unchecked workflows and most other items when trying to just create a backup of a critical list. We just need the content, nothing more. Is…

  14. Microsoft Project Online Backup

    It would be great to be able to backup Project .MPP files, the project database, connected SharePoint sites and environment configurations. Especially because POL is essentially an extension of SharePoint.

    Currently, only FluentPro has a viable product that does this, and the cost effectiveness of their tool is typical of a monopoly.

  16. Enable backup for PWA sites

    I had a client ask if Sharegate could be used to back up PWA sites. The main reason was less for disaster recovery, and more to allow for reversion to a prior project plan when one gets screwed up.

  18. preserve created/modified metadata directly on files when exporting

    When doing an Export from SharePoint, some users wish to preserve the default metadata values (modified and created dates) on the files themselves, and not in a separate excel file.

    We’ll send you updates on this idea

    Recently, we launched ShareGate Apricot, a tool that offers to delegate the decision of archiving stale groups to users.

    That being said, an office 365 backup feature is not something we are planning to add to ShareGate Desktop. We’ll still keep the suggestion opened to new votes and comments and keep our eyes on it. But for now, it is not part of our priorities.

    We’ll update the suggestion if our plans change.

    Thank you,

  20. Incremental Export (Download content)

    Ability to only export new / changed files when doing Download content.
    Also incremental Export-Site with PowerShell
