  1. Cache filters of the All tasks screen

    When I hit the back button PLEASE cache the filters for "your completed tasks" as it takes AGES To load. PLease, I clicked on the incorrect option and it is as if I started a new check.

  6. command to list subfolders in Box via PowerShell

    If I can offer some feedback or a suggestion. Having a command to list subfolders in Box via PowerShell would be tremendously helpful. Something like Get-BoxFolder and have a switch to display sub-folders or not. I’ve used ShareGate Desktop for several large Box migrations and that is something that would be very useful.

  8. When migrating documents, be able to exclude the source retention label from being applied at the destination.

    When migrating documents, the source label is always applied at the destination. It would be good to have a way to exclude these.

  10. Scan/Report on Long File Names

    The 255 character limit for file names can be ignored until migrating. This will result in errors and warning on the migration report. I want to flatten the folder structure or use metadata entirely but I have to know where the issue exists without manipulating a document inventory report with formulas "PATH=LEN".

  11. report on the completed tasks

    For example, I want to export to Excel or something all the tasks I have completed in the Sharegate tool. Not export the actions themselves. I'm looking for a report of what I have done.

  12. Database size reporting

    SPDockit can do health checks such as looking at database sizes, seeing disk allocation, checking the event logs, etc. These are things related to the SharePoint on-premise environment that ShareGate does not have visibility into. I would love to see these features integrated into ShareGate or perhaps it would be another tool altogether.

  13. Set a Default for Mapping Unresolved User and Groups

    To be able to default mapping of Unresolved users.
    For every migration I set in the mappings screen that Unresolved user and groups should be system account. If not it pulls my name into the modified by or create by field. It would be great to set a default, so I don't have to go in and set it for every migration. I do see that I can export a list and re-import it for another migration, but for just the Unresolved users that process is longer then searching for the account I want to use.

  14. Ability to export Manage Activations page report as CSV

    We have 100+ Sharegate licenses that we provide to departments in our organization with fee. It is very hard to build reports and review based on current activations. We would like to request a feature to be able to export these activations into CSV file.

  17. Define task name in Options

    The ability to rename existing tasks is a good thing. It would be much better if naming a task could be done proactively in the UI. I believe this can be done in PowerShell. However, since come tasks cannot be started via PowerShell (e.g. Permission Matrix Reports), this ability is limited.

    Being able to set a Task Name before starting a job, via the UI, would make it possible to organize tasks instead of having to manually open each task to determine what it was for prior to renaming it (see attached).

  20. Add "Copy From" and "Copy To" in the Copy screen

    As one of innumerable admins who work long and fluctuating hours, and who still perform some migrations through the GUI, it would be super awesome if there were a visual indicator of source and destination sites in the migration interface. Even better, a "Copy From" and "Copy To" heading over each column. When you're preparing to merge a large site collection into a blank target site at 2 in the morning, it would be very reassuring to know beyond a shadow of doubt that I'm not erasing one of the company's primary knowledge portals. The URLs can be very similar…
