  3. Please display Destination Path in migration reports, also if items are skipped.

    When importing files based on Excel-file input, folders might be added to DestinationPath column., and there is currently no way to reconstruct the complete url to the already existing item, based on the other properties of migration report item details.

  4. Download/export content to blob storage instead of local disk

    Our org are heavy users of SharePoint, however with SharePoint storage being expensive, we tend to archive old data (or archive all data from old, unneeded SharePoint sites).

    We use ShareGate to download document libraries from SharePoint, and manually upload them into our Azure Blob Storage accounts.

    Is there a possibility that we can link ShareGate with Azure Blob or Azure Storage accounts? Having direct access to migrate and move data to Blob storage would save a large amount of time since we wouldn't have to wait for large amounts of data to download, and then spend more time waiting…

  5. Show security groups in PMR

    When I run the "Permissions Matrix report" it doesn't show the Security groups which are used/nested within SharePoint Groups. It would be good to have them in the report.

    Kind regards,

  6. Configure teams incremental copies

    I want to do incremental copy on teams, but I can't configure anything since the team sites remain grey and can't be selected.

  7. Missing users should not prevent file copies during promote operation

    When promoting a subsite, there aren't many options to deal with potential errors, like missing users. My experience is if there are missing users, ShareGate does not copy list items but instead, throws errors. A list with over 1600 items only copied 333 because of missing users.

    There should be more options available, similar to copying a site or list, when promoting sites.

  8. Download all versions of files

    I'd like to be able to download (archive) all version history for files in a library with the option to only download metadata and not the files themselves. We need to retain all the change info stored in version history but only need the latest published version of the file itself.
    Thanks.

  10. Ability to delete logs based on age of logs

    Please have something that will clean up old logs. Either a delete older than this date. Or based on size. Doing file share migrations generates a lot of logs.

  11. Include the option to choose the site title and URL when merging sites

    When merging two sites with Copy Structure and Content, ShareGate Desktop defaults to the destination name and URL without another choice.

    It would be good to add the option to choose between the source and destination names, or even add a new one.

  13. Export report result to sharepoint list

    Hello,

    we run regularly a Site Index Report, listing all site collections and their owners (and additional information). The report should be used by all users to let them identify who to contact when they require access to a site (and the access request is not turned on).
    However, an Excel list is not really user friendly and we would love to see that report being delivered into a SharePoint list directly, so I wonder if there is a way you can make it possible instead of reporting into an Excel to report into a SharePoint list and update that…

  15. Copy the Title of the LinkTitle column when copying lists

    If you rename the "Title" column using the modern interface, it will actually rename the "LinkTitle" column. It seems that copying a list with ShareGate doesn't copy this.
