  1. Allow licensing management from the Sharegate portal and Sharegate support portal

    It would be important to have an area available in the Sharegate Portal (http://sharegate.com) and Sharegate support Portal (https://support-desktop.sharegate.com) with all licenses associated with our account and be able to manage them, including deativating the license. We had a problem with the PC where Sharegate was installed and were unable to recover it and the only way we currently have is to access the licensing portal to manage our license is through the Sharegate Desktop application. If the application is not available (problems with the PC), we cannot acess the licensing management page and have to…

  2. ShareGate Online version

    ShareGate should have online version. It will be really helpful for the user to login from anywhere and can work on migration. Licence can be given by office 365 user ID or ShareGate can have there own customer ID and login.

  3. Bigger font sizes for high resolution screens

    It would be useful to have the ability to easily increase the size of the font.  I have been using ShareGate via our sever and the font is so small as to be almost unreadable.  This may be due to the fact that I am using a very high resolution monitor on my computer and using his to access the server via remote desktop.

  4. 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.

  5. Allow multiple windows

    Add a setting which when enabled, and you double click the sharegate.exe it opens a new process, so you can view/do 2 different things on 2 seperate screens.

  6. Ability to Export Scheduled Tasks List

    I am in the midst of replacing the Sharegate folders again due to issues with connections. We have 70 scheduled tasks that have to be manually recreated each time we have to start over with Sharegate folders. If there was a way to export the scheduled jobs, it would make life so much easier.

    Thanks!

  7. Partner Portal - Sales History - get the customer license manager encrypted url

    To provide partners to help customers with license issues, its nice to open the license manager of the customer from the Partner Portal.

    In the Sales History its possible to view the license code of customers. But to see the usage of the license we need to ask the customer to provide us the license manager (encrypted) url to view there license manager.

    Would it be possible to make a button/link in the Sales History so partners can access the License Manager of the customer?

  8. Review Auto-Assign as Site Collection Administrator Process

    Review the way Sharegate uses the auto-assign feature

    - Handle differently per type of site (OneDrive, Groups, Team sites)
    - Setting per tenant / farm / connection
    - Option to auto-remove after each operations
    - Handle special cases (eDiscovery sites, NO ACCESS or Read-only)

    Hello everyone,

    Since no decision has been made as to whether or not the process will be optimized I just want to mention that if you don’t want yourself to be added as an admin all the time, simply turn off the “Auto-Assign as Administrator” option in the settings menu of ShareGate Desktop. Also, note that you can always use the following procedure to remove yourself from the admins if it happens again: https://support-desktop.sharegate.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000647528-Can-I-remove-myself-as-an-administrator-after-I-have-auto-assigned-myself-as-one-

    Thank you,

  9. Make the auto-update off by default

    When installing Sharegate and first launching the application, some users might face an auto-update and end up with the latest version.
    For some organisations, they might not want to allow the update if they need to approve the software.
    A solution would be to make the auto-update be turned off by default.

  11. Customize the access to only certain Sharegate features

    Possibility to provide a user an instance of Sharegate so that they can only run reports and not have access to functionality such as migration.

  13. Allow licensing per user instead of per machine

    We use virtual desktops (VDI) and it seems that your licences attach themselves to computer names. As we use VDI terminal our computer names are never the same. The way that you currently track licences make using ShareGate very unattractive.

    We purchase many licensed software solutions and all except ShareGate run in a VDI environment without having the deactivate the licence every time you use it. Could the license model be changed?

    Hi!

    Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback via Sharegate’s Uservoice. Unfortunately, the suggestion provided is not in the current roadmap and has therefore been declined. Although the current status of this suggestion is under “declined”, it has not been deleted from our feedback service. Other users will continue to have the chance to vote for this suggestion.

  18. LARGER Scroll bar!

    Please, the scroll bar is EXTREMELY small on the Select Orphaned Users and on the CLean Orphaned Users. PLEASE make it MUCH wider! it seems like it is 3 pixels wide!

  19. Make a Sharegate API to enable cloud or 3rd party solutions

    An API available for partners and customers to build solutions, especially in Office 365, that allow them to move content and eventually structure to new location.

    If Sharegate made an API, we could build our own custom actions or new App Parts with the SharePoint Framework, Azure Functions, etc. to provide value to end users on a day to day basis.

  20. Restrict licence management to a specific user

    CJ Owens from inforeliance wishes that he could restrict a seated user's ability to manage (activate/deactivate) the licence's seats for himself and other users. It would be nice if a managing user could be determined.
