Would like to really see a complete overview of all the files present in the library including those that inherit permissions.13 votes
Right now, Sharegate is migrating the entire folder structure with a lot of empty folders regardless of if there are active files (modified in the past 18 months) within them. I would like Sharegate to apply the same rule on the folders when none of the file under it are migrated. In those cases, the folder should be ignored.12 votes
Currently, the root site needs to be migrated to move its corresponding default.aspx page. I'd like to be able to migrate the Default.aspx page alone.17 votes
[Admin note: Merged all suggestion related to more complex filtering during Migration or Import]
- Filter on full file names instead of just exensions.
- Filter with wildcards
- Include / Exclude folder by name using the custom templates
- Exclude specific (sub) folders based on names
- Timestamp/range filters - last modified date and created date
- List or site template filters
- Filter by property (name, type, etc.)
- Filter by size
- Filter empty objects (sites, libraries, folders, ...)
- Exclude specific type of objects (Microfeed...)
We feel like our migration experience is quite good right now and we don’t plan on doing custom rules and filters for now.
Some of those can already be done using PowerShell, SharePoint views and other means.
We will eventually reevaluate this once we advance further in our roadmap.
Quickly compare source and destination content in order to see what needs to be incrementally migrated and to prove to customers that every item from the source made it to destination.
To be compared:
-lists and libraries240 votes
This is not currently in our plan to allow our users to compare two environments.
We might do it in the future, possibly starting with permission as it seems like it would be the most useful part on security level.
-With a lot of sites in my tenant it would be really helpfull, that when I’m in the select source/destination was able to search for a site.
-Would be nice if you could find something in either the 'from' or 'to' display box by searching or even a search string (N25*) or something similar.11 votes
When connecting to a site in the Migration tool, you have options to not remember the site, and you can forget sites that are already remembered.
It would be mandatory to not preserve that information in the Sharegate Explorer as well for some users. It seems to go against policy to do so.15 votes

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.
For example, if a file has been deleted in the source after it had gotten copied over to SharePoint, can it be deleted in SharePoint?
The goal is to re-sync only the updates, additions and deletions without the need to copy the whole thing again. It allows to keep on using the source environment while keeping the destination one sync until we're ready to go live with the new site.
-documents (move them to a different location if the user has moved it since the last update)
As much as we hear your need, this is not currently on our road map. We will revisit it eventually.

Add powershell cmdlets to add/remove/copy user permissions.
This could be useful, for example, for a user that needs to replace thousands of users due to an AD domain change, it would be useful to be able to use a CSV for all the users24 votes
