    Can you tell us more on what you are trying to do in terms of “Forms” migration ?

    Note: We are currently looking into Microsoft Forms Web Part migration in Office 365.

  4. Add Team Site filters from the Explorer

    You have done a good job splitting out O365 Groups, OneDrive, and Web Apps in the gui, but it would be great if you could also separate out "TEAMS" type sites in the filters.
    It is extremely tedious to have to deselect all of the possible Team Site - site collections when trying to run reports for just Sharepoint sites.
    Feedback sent from the Explorer view.

  7. 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?

  9. Add Content DB Names in the Site Collection Report

  10. Consider a service that stores report data in a data warehouse

    Sharegate has great reports, but it is a challenge to run reports against a large tenant. We wrote custom scripts that inventory all sites and subwebs to gather hundreds of metadata. We write these data, including permission matrix, to SQL server database then use Power BI for analytics. Has Sharegate considered as part of their offering to have a way to configure Sharegate to do this work for us and write it to a configurable SQL Server (Azure or on prem) under our control? I'd be happy to elaborate.

  14. Disable Workflows when Copying or Importing Content

    When using the copy content option to do an incremental migration on a library, the approval workflow on this library was started for all items in the library. Is this expected behavior? If yes, this information should really be provided as I was unable to find anything on your site referencing this or what to do to prevent it from happening. This can’t be something we would want to happen. It had quite a big impact on completing a migration since it created a huge problem I had to clean up.

  15. 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.

  16. External Sharing Report user value format

    Hi,
    the external sharing report from the explorer where you can choose among Site, List, List Content is good, but it would be great if we could build a custom report from it (i.e. to choose different columns - for users, we only have display names values separated by comma which is a bit annoying for futher processes)
    thanks
