  1. Look and feel

    When I go to do a copy operation, I do appreciate having a pre-filled suggestion for the Task I'm running. In my early days with the tool, I always overwrote that suggested title to something more meaningful, but the more I use it the less time I have to get that fancy. So I'd like to bring your team's attention to the way tasks then show up in the Tasks lists. They ALL start with "Copy ## items" and I have to expand the field wider to see meaningful information. So my proposal would be to change your pre-filled suggestion…

  3. Support Azure App Registration for Powershell Modern Auth for Unattended Scripts.

    Ability to use Azure App registration for powershell modern authentication in order to support unattended scripts.

    Using -browser param, defeats purpose of scripting automation for large volume migrations of sites during off hours.

    Basic Legacy auth will eventually be deprecated by MS.

  4. Improve promote site list load time

    Your Subsite promtion tool is useless with large tenants. We have 20k sites and I cannot easily pull up a site to do a subsite promotion on.

  7. Search in migration source/destination selection screen

    Enter SharePoint URL in GUI instead of having to browse a list and also save credentials.

    Right now it's painful to use the GUI when we want to select/find a SharePoint site to migrate. It would be helpful if we could simply go to the "Copy" page and then simply search or enter the URL of the SharePoint site to select it, rather than have to scroll down a large list when we have thousands of sites to "find" it. You can search in Teams so I'm not sure why you can't search for SharePoint sites...
    This is also made…

  9. Map properties depending on the source content type

    On our scenario, we want to map two properties from the source, not one.
    However, we do not want to merge them into one because it's not the case that two existing properties will map to one property; they will still be a one-to-one mapping.

    We would like to do something like this,

    $propMappings = Set-PropertyMapping -MappingSettings $propMappings -Source "prop1" -Destination "prop3"

    $propMappings = Set-PropertyMapping -MappingSettings $propMappings -Source "prop2" -Destination "prop3"

    However, by doing this ShareGate overwrites the first mapping with the second one.

    The reason for doing this is simple: each content type will only have one of the…

  10. Map/concatenate multiple text properties into a single property

    We would like that, in PowerShell, we could have the ability to map multiple properties to a single property.
    At the moment, it seems that this is possible only with certain types of fields.

    "3) Advanced scenario – Multiple columns to a single column
    Since Sharegate 2.9, any destination column that supports the ‘multi-values’ (Lookup, Choice, People, Managed Metadata) option will allow more than one column to be mapped to it"
    https://sharegate.com/blog/sharepoint-merge-remap-multiple-columns-to-a-single-column

    So if we have a simple scenario such as:
    Property A (text)
    Property B (text)

    We cannot map them to a
    Property C (text)

    this is only allowed…

  12. Searching on "Copy Structure and Content" form

    As of now, ShareGate does not offer the option to search through the Copy Content and Structure user interface. If you have a hundreds of sites you are not able to search here. It would be a great help for the migrator operators to add a search box to this form.

  13. Ability to temporarily take over landing page to communicate to users about upcoming migration or changes

    It is difficult to get business owners of sites to communicate with their user base. They have mixed success in getting the message about site changes in front of their users. The ability to create a temporary page to communicate changes would be useful in addressing this. As admin we are asked by site owners how they can let every site user about the changes and in the event of a large multi-site migration this is too much of an overhead to try and retrieve lists of email addresses for SP2010 and SPO using PowerShell.

    A traffic light system might…

  15. Allow import of directories with the system attribute

    Both the pre-migration analysis as the migration filter out ‘system’ directories (folders with the ‘system’ attribute) when doing a fileshare analysis/import. It would be nice to be able to include them (be default, or by optional toggle).

    Now we get an incomplete report because it doesn’t contain those (sub)directories.

  18. Share tasks and jobs with other users

    As a tech with multiple techs doing similar jobs, we want to be able to share our Sharegate tasks and jobs so that if I am working on a job, someone else might need to check its status, or even possibly start an incremental job from a team or adjust the schedule of reoccurring.

    I understand that currently everything is based on a desktop app, but if there could be a central database, or location for the data on the same machine, this would really help!
