  2. Mass-configure/run permission reports across all sites

    I have two very common use-cases for my proposed idea. I'll first give the two examples;

    Example 1: We hold "Site Owners" as being responsible for ensuring their permissions are up to date. We like to enforce permission audits once-quarterly.

    Example 2: We acquired a competitor and are migrating their SharePoint environment into ours. It would be nice to provide all their Site Owners (typically 50+ individuals) with a permissions matrix that is relevant to them without having to manually manipulate, or rely on them to filter/sort a master permissions report.

    The proposed feature: Please consider adding checkbox/radio button option…

    Is it possible to automatically convert old file types to knewer ones?

    If not, then it would be a huge help and a great feature

  4. Better task names

    I'm doing some migrations and would really like to see exactly from which library/site/list that i'm migrating to and from.
    i don't find "Copy 1 item from Network-
    Voice.... to Network..." very useful. the name of the item would be much better.

  5. Language detection by product

    The source is in Dutch, the destination is English. “documenten -> Documents”. My question is why aren’t languages detected by the product?

  8. Add the site template column to the Check permissions report

    I'm running the Check Permissions report for an individual user to see what sites the user has access. It would be helpful to know which template the site is using.

  9. Improve file share analysis

    Hi, can you confirm whether it's possible to add additional columns that pick up existing metadata when using the "Migration - Plan - Source Analysis - File Share" report. In additional to the default columns I'd like to find out when a document was last created and last modified from a File Share. Is this possible? Also can you confirm whether ShareGate can analyse file content to identify sensitive content before migration. Thank you.

  11. Report to identify O365 group connected with MS Teams

    Hi,

    It would be useful to have a report to help us to identify MS Teams. All modern teamsites have O365 group connected so it's difficult to find out how many O365 group who have MS Teams.

  13. Copy Structure with dependency knowledge

    I can't understand why I get errors that a list doesn't exist when it's processing a lookup field, even when the dependent list was already selected as a list to migrate. That seems like just doing some simple dependency logic ahead of time.

    Now, I have to run the same migration 3 times to slowly migrate the objects up the "dependency tree" , each migration has less and less errors, this just seems silly.

  14. Copy metadata from a library to a list

    Very disappointed this is not possible, I now have to write a custom script to do this very straightforward operation.

  16. Copy Task forms

    Hi, Task forms are not being copied with Nintex workflows. Big issues when there are many tasks and when we're going from DEV to PROD.

  17. Ability to run reports of all active Workflow instances

    I am preparing to break the connection of workflow manager from our SharePoint environment which will cause any currently active 2013 workflows to fail. I would like a report that shows actively running workflow instances (with the ability to configure the report to show 2013 or 2010 workflow instances) so we can avoid any failures.

  20. Suggestion for the Promote feature

    I was unable to use the Promote feature for my project. I wanted to promote 300+ subsites.


    1. All subsites were in one site collection. A feature in the UI to bulk select them is missing.


    2. I had to change the url per site because they contained spaces, and the url is reused as Alias by ShareGate. It does not resolve the problem automatically. Also the UI does not support changing settings for all selected subsites.


    3. I created a PowerShell script to automatically create a vallid url from the original url. But when using Promote from PowerShell in a for-loop, the…
