  6. Incremental Migration of Error Items Only & Retry

    The idea is to use the migration report to start a new migration of the files that error out only, instead of running a full incremental migration.

  8. Audit report - exclude users


    • exclude system accounts

    Good morning! I wonder if there is a way to have the Audit Reports have a checkbox to say "don't show system accounts" or "WE" can build them "ignore the search crawler account and the system account" as a checkbox so my results do'nt need to be filtered. I have a user who had permissions changed and I am looking for it. I want to find out which user / group moved it / changed it and I know it's not the search account or ME / system account. Just offering a sugestion! :)

  10. Custom rules or columns, and more built-in columns in Inventory and migration/pre-check reports

    [Admin: Merged all suggestions pertaining to inventory- or migration-related reports. This will allow better understanding of the priority of this topic]

    Pre-Check and Migration reports
    -Add more columns (sizes, end times, etc.)
    -Also enhancement to the Session summary screen to include URLs, total size, etc.

    Inventory
    Would be very good if we as users can customize the rules and columns:
    -Add custom columns like Site owners
    -Be able to change the settings of the inventory (ex: change the unused sites time to x months)
    -Have more available details at each level (Number of items, Last modified date, size, etc.)
    -See…

    Hi everyone,

    Lately we decided to shift most of our energy towards migrating, managing and adopting Office 365. When we create new features, we make sure they also work with SharePoint on-premise (if possible), but we are not planning on developing more options of features specifically for on-premise at the moment.

    I’ll keep the suggestion open and our ears are still open to new comments.

    Thank you,

  12. Ability to Export the Task List to Excel


    • To be able to export a list of all the tasks to be able to monitor the activity from Sharegate.

    • Is there a way that we could see all team member’s tasks and scheduled reports?

  15. Preserve the Toolbar Settings of a Home Page Web Part

    Currently, this setting is not preserved. I'd like Sharegate to preserve the toolbar settings for webparts.

  20. Who shared with External users - Report

    Hi all,
    When I first trialed this solution I got great value from a report that detailed what sharepoint artifact was shared with an external user and who shared it.
    I can't seem to find that report now, can one of you help me locate or recreated it?

    regards,
    Jay
