    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,

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

    Hi everyone,

    I’m curious to hear more from you about this one.
    -What kind of information would you like to see in such a site map?
    -What format you’d like it to be?
    -What would you do with it? Who would you show it to?

    Thanks for your help!

  13. 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
